The object shapes don't have to be circles!
You can overlap any shapes you want to invent!
Mix them up, too!

 "Spiraling Spheres"

Overlap circles (or other shapes) of graduated sizes, moving from smallest to largest (largest on top- draw it first) to create an illusion of movement toward you from the surface of the page. Fill the page with various sized trails.
Shade one end of the spiral trail gradually darker, one end lighter to enhance the illusion of movement and depth. Your choice of colors.
Create an interesting background; perhaps using analogous colors or monochromatic tints and shades to develop an ambiguous space.

*Teaching points: techniques for spatial relationships (depth), analogous, monochromatic colors
