Mondrian Inspired Grid Drawings

Sorry, I'm not sure why these images are rotated on the side! I've tried uploading them twice.
Anywho, after a lesson on cubism, abstract art, and Mondrian, students made these awesome grid drawings!

They could draw any subject matter, avoiding anything with too many tiny details, and then they drew a series of horizontal and vertical lines. Using only the primary colors and black, they colored in their spaces, making sure no two spaces of the same color touched. I tried to have the students use an equal amount of each color. 

This was my teacher example I started and forgot to take a photo before I started coloring. I didn't really like how perfectly square the spaces are, so I decided to let student not have to do any measuring with the spacing of their lines.
