You will need

  • Watercolor Paper
  • A palette of watercolor paints
  • Paintbrush

There really are no rules when it comes to this painting. Every triangle can be a different color or you can decide on a hue of colors to use. I opted for blues and purples and mixed the colors as I went.

No need to sketch out anything beforehand either just start by painting a single triangle then tessellating triangles around it. Paint different sizes and use different angles to get a really random look.
