864 triangles in a hexagon

“864”, acrylic on 24″ hexagonal canvas

This was the first, and trickiest, painting in my Hexagons series.

All the shapes were composed from edges of eight hundred and sixty-four equilateral triangles (one inch on each side) on this canvas.  I even painted 864 coloured dots, in sets of 16 colours, all the way around the sides.
