Season 2 Episode 5 – More on Fibonacci

The inspiration for Sample #3 was a parrot. It honestly had all these colours in it, it was just breathtaking. All my early inspiration comes from some external source and eventually it morphs into something that has my fingerprint on it. Things we will learn:

  • Using Fibonacci in yet another way. I have taken the numbers, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 13 and added a zero to each one, i.e. 2 => 20, 3 => 30, 5 => 50, 8 => 80, 13 => 130. The graphic grows systematically.
  • The power of a line.
  • The idea of Same/Same. You have two ways to make your warp with the same colours – you get to pick – either way is equally beautiful.
  • Colour Gradation plus another element with strong contrast.
  • Clasped Weft Technique.
