Isometric stuff

Here’s a list of studies of colours in isometric forms.

Double hexagons

Two hexagons next two each other, each divided into six triangles that can be coloured individually. What can we do with those? These studies were inspired by work that my student Ali Şahin showed me.

On each page there are 100 of these double hexagons. When you click on one you can start changing the colour of its triangles. This works with the illustrations on this page as well.

  1. A qualitative contrast made of five steps in lightness

    The constants in this study are a random hue and a random saturation (between 20 and 100). The colour varies in five different values for lightness: 10, 30, 50, 70 and 90.

  2. A qualitative contrast made of five steps in saturation

    The constants in this study are a random hue and a random lightness (between 10 and 90). The colour varies in five different values for saturation: 10, 30, 50, 70 and 90.

  3. A qualitative contrast made of three steps in lightness

    The constants in this study are a random hue and a random saturation (between 20 and 100). The colour varies in three different values for lightness: 20, 50, and 80.

  4. A qualitative contrast made of three steps in saturation

    The constants in this study are a random hue and a random lightness (between 10 and 90). The colour varies in three different values for saturation: 20, 50 and 80.

  5. A quantitative contrast made of three different hues

    The constants in this study are a random saturation (between 10 and 90) and a random lightness (between 20 and 80). The colours vary in hue. Three hues are generated at random.

  6. A quantitative contrast made of twelve different hues

    The constants in this study are a random saturation (between 10 and 90) and a random lightness (between 10 and 90). The colours vary in hue. Twelve hues are generated at random.

  7. A quantitative contrast made with a constant lightness

    The only constant in this study is a random lightness (between 10 and 90). The three hues and saturation are generated at random.

  8. A quantitative contrast made with a constant saturation

    The only constant in this study is a random saturation (between 10 and 90). The three hues and lightness are generated at random.

  9. All sorts of contrasts made of three completely random colours

    There is no constant in this study. Hue, saturation and lightness for all three colours are generated at random.
