The collage studies.
Just as I did with the masters paintings and watercolour/glass vessels. I took some time taking photos of various ‘clutter’
I opted for the photo of the backseat of my car, which with a toddler becomes full of clutter fast! I’m still unsure if this was the best choice. What would make a good photo?
I struggled with my collage making even though I enjoy the technique itself. It was good practice to really study a confused composition, to have to translate the colours in to tones too. I found the solution with recreating the composition was to keep focused on any strong lines of direction and the main shape of the orange plastic bag to keep the focus and some sense of clarity.
The monotone piece was interesting to me, probably because the lack of colour allowed me to focus on composition.
