As I mentioned last time, out of 100 little pieces, there are about 10 that I really like. Here are my favorites.
|I like the irregular shape of the circle, the soft edges, and the splashy texture.|
|The delicate, busy texture contrasted with black and white solid areas.|
|I love a vessel shape. This piece symetrical but I think the texture varies enough to keep it interesting.|
|I love the texture of the white square with black charcoal dots. I smeared them slightly and it made them look 3-D. I couldn't help but name this "Egg Salad."|
|I use cruciform compositions a lot. I like the simplicity of this one and the almost masculine quality of it. It feels like a graffiti wall.|
|Always like an abstract landscape, and I especially like the moody atmosphere of this one. I would like to raise the horizon line about 1/2" though to make it more dramatic.|
|Just like the playful movement of this one.|
|I like the movement and the way the very thin white lines add to that.|
|I'm really surprised to see this is my fifth symetrical composition here! I didn't think I usually like those.|
|I like the feeling that it is just balancing but could easily tip over.|
I probably learn even more from studying the ones that don't quite work, and there are many of those to choose from. Here are three.
|I think it's the lack of dominance of any one thing that bothers me here. 3 similar size shapes piled up in the center.|
|Same thing here. Similar size shapes, nothing emphasized, and the page divides down the middle.|
|And a "what was I thinking?" I like a calligraphic line, but this one isn't appealing. This looks like a start that I would then work on top of with more layers.|
