15 features experiment with intersecting color (middle mixture color) that would have been more successful using paper instead of ink; the result was too murky. According to Albers this exercise should illustrate a new deception the “fluting effect” found in a Doric column, which shows the illusion of volume. Fluting in architecture is the shallow grooves running vertically along a surface. The term typically refers to the grooves running on a column shaft or a pilaster, but need not necessarily be restricted to those two applications.
