The purpose of this thesis has been to formulate a collection of paintings. Nine examples of planimetric structures are contrasted by seven creations produced without a preconceived idea. These paintings are reproduced photographically to illustrate visually the difference between the two modes of creative expression. This dissertation serves to clarify aspects of technical information concerning the two methods. The term planimetrics, as used in this thesis, is a combination of two word forms. The first form is derived from the prefix “plani”, meaning flat, level and plane. The second form is the word "metric", which involves measurement. Joining the two forms together, we formulate a proper noun which is expressive of the creative work found in the first portion of this thesis.
