i took the day off on thursday because it was my birthday but i took a quick pic of it on my phone so i could keep looking at it during the day with fresh eyes, and i *hated* it. so i came home, made another, more graphic piece then couldn't decide which one i preferred...so i put it to the vote on social media (thank you if you commented on FB, IG or twitter!) & would you believe the vote was even?! one thing i did with the new piece was add a pop of pink - so i looked at the 'old' collage and decided to keep working on it, adding pops of bright pink. and so the one i submitted is the original piece with a few additions - a lesson learnt i think, but i wouldn't have got there without making the second piece. i was thrilled when it was chosen amongst some very beautiful pieces in this week's review by lilla as a good example of low volume contrast. result!
this week is all about collections...but i'm being honest, until i know what the main assignment is tomorrow, i'm having a few days off to think and contemplate...
|original piece - i liked it, but it wasn't quite there|
|new piece, much busier & more graphic - see that little pink flower?|
|improved original, so pleased with it!|
