Concentric Circles


I decided to do a painting exercise of the famous painter Wassily Kandinsky's Concentric Circles.


I used a ruler to create the boxes.


I started painting the circles in each square using acrylic paint.


Here is a completed square.



Just a few more finishing touches.

It was fun replicating this famous painting. This is a good excercise to better understand color and improve your painting ability. You should try to reproduce one of your favorite works of art.

That looks like an enjoyable exercise! Matching colors is one of my favorite things to try to do when the kids and I do art projects.

Great colours, if I were to replicate a famous painting I would choose Matisse's Nasturtiums with the Dance. It is my absolute favourite!
