Now 27 is not neatly divisible by 4, so this means that the design cannot have an equal number of shells of each colour. Indeed, in Tanushree's case, there are only 6 orange shells, but 7 each of the other 3 colours.
( 7 x 3 ) + 6 = 27
It's a very small thing, but so is a pebble in one's shoe. This tiny, tiny imperfection troubled me a fair bit, and I told Tanushree so. I was gratified when she responded, concurring with me on this.
I hear you! It troubled me too. I got around it by 'categorising' the orange differently to the rest. It's the feature/colour pop whereas the others are standard!
My lounge already has a couple of paintings that employ this concept.
For that, I had to create a hexagonal grid and colour it.
1. A canvas of size 610 mm x 508 mm
2. Some hanging wire and hooks
4. Acrylic paint (Carbon Black and Titanium White)
5. Two large brushes and a fine one
- One each in the three shades of red
Black - 8 shells; Dark red - 1 shell
