Asa-No-Ha pattern: Variations and experiments

Even a traditional pattern, which has been used for centuries in decorative arts, can still be further developed and change in order to give completely new and original results. Take for example the Asa-No-Ha pattern, a well-known and popular pattern in Japanese culture, and try the following variations. 

  • Experiment with a monochromatic color scheme. Use for the design lines and the background two tones of the same color.

  • Experiment with complementary colors. A pair of complementary colors, when placed next to each other, they create the strongest contrast and reinforce each other. In painting, the traditional complementary color pairs, are red-green, yellow-violet and blue-orange.
