Claus Hagenhoff demonstrates a fine example of close level colour work with polarity of tone using an asymmetric block colouring technique. Claus provides advice on colour palette, sectioning, melting and suitability. 

The final result is a bonny array of warm and cool shades of intense warm copper and red, violet tones with an asymmetric placement for full playful integration of light.
