Exercise 4 Monochrome

The first step to this exercise was to decide on the choice of monochrome color and the natural and man-made objects and contrasting material. I decided to go for the color white, choosing white still life objects and arranging them while documenting them through the use of my mobile camera as suggestions for the best compositional arrangement. 1,155 more words


Exercise 3 Experiment with mixed media


This exercise gave me a lot of opportunity to come up with different experimentations using traditional and especially nontraditional media, aiming for the unpredictable.  The challenge with using nontraditional media was how much of it was I able to keep it under control while trying to make the aesthetics of the composition work thus applying the basic principles of tone, line and color balance.   1,962 more words

Project 4: Exercise 1 - Still life using line

This exercise brief threw me a bit as there were lots of questions that I didn’t know how to answer. I set up a scene where the objects did connect naturally – sink taps, toothbrushes and soap dispenser with a bathroom tiled background and some of the shower curtain  peering through the left of the scene. 235 more words
