I put the motifs from the workshop on the wall, and decided I needed to move them around some more. I like the way the motif makes different shapes, which show up when the yellow motif is placed next to another yellow motif, in each of these photo's. Now, I want to play around with the way they interact, make a lot more, and compose them into interesting shapes. Nancy Crow emphasizes the figure/ground relationship. In the bottom photo, the two squares that are side by side -yellow against the brown and black ground - show how effective it can be when it is used effectively.
It also shows how helpful a digital camera can be in the studio. It makes it easy to pick up on what is working, and what isn't. I make prints on a small photo printer, to document my progress. A lot easier than trying to remember if moving a piece has made a difference or not.
