Intrigued By Overlapping Colors


I’ve always liked this look: some interesting colors are created when transparent shapes are placed on top of each other. I’ve been using this technique a lot in my design work lately—it has sort of a stained glass or layered tissue paper feel. And I really like the way these other artists and designers have used this look in their work as well, so thought I’d share.
