Construction in green

The artist – Ralph Balson – loved to paint geometric shapes in many colours, overlapping and arranging them on the canvas in abstract constructions.

  • Find this abstract painting.
  • Name the geometric shapes you can find in the painting. Do they remind you of anything?
  • Invent your own geometric pattern here using circles, squares, rectangles, triangles and lines. Will you make your picture look like anything or just an abstract pattern?


At home

Cut out shapes from coloured paper, and arrange them on a background into a shape or pattern and create your own abstract artwork.
