Hexa-gone made

1 Hexagon (1m across. Each side 50cm)
150 Internal Triangles (10 x10 x10cm)
400 Triangles inside each Internal Triangle (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5cm)
60,000 Individual 0.5 triangles to hand colour.
1 of 3 in the series
180,000 triangles in total when the 3 are finished.

As the main colour palette for most of my work is the ever dazzling black and yellow it seemed fitting that they should be the main colours for these drawings. However, when black and yellow are mixed they produce an insipid, murky range of greens and browns from ocre to olive gray.

See that shaded area in the middle? Thats what 60,000 unshaded triangles look like with the image underneath. Watch all these spaces.

A few hundred down, a few thousand to go.
