Obviously the Instagram filters I used on each of these photos is slightly different from each other, but I promise they are same color pieces in each photo! So I started out by finding a bunch of colors that just seemed to want to play together.
My first attempt turned out pretty cool, but my teacher said it lacked composition. For you non-artists or designers, that basically means that my piece needed a focal point and some sort of structure to it.
Last night I sat down and found a bunch MORE colors and started laying over the collage I'd already done. It just needed a little more color support in certain areas. What I needed up with is (hopefully) a pretty strong composition! I guess the moral of the story is, you can alway push your work further than you originally thought you could. ;)
