This exercise is to build on collage skills which I previously explored in Part 1 of the course. However, the focus is to be on the exploration and presentation of colour and composition.
I initially took a picture of a corner in my studio.
Using this photograph as a reference I created three collage studies, that capture its colour and composition.
A simple colour combination
The second collage was to be an unusual colour combination. I chose a mix of very vibrant colours for this and a palette I would not usually choose.
The third collage was required to have a complex colour combination. Complexity suggested to me, a wider range of colours and detail.
I chose the unusual colour combination to make three further collages as I wanted to use the simple shapes I had picked out in it.
I had some really nice black and white patterned papers and decided to use them to complete a monochromatic study.
I chose to work with a range of blues for the single colour study. As I am blue-green colour blind I thought this might present a challenge for me. I hope I managed to effectively represent the tonal values of the original collage.
The third version required us to be bold and adventurous using a large number of different colours and papers.
