Contrast, Line, and Color

Contrast, Line, and Color - student project

Hi! First of all thank you so much for this class! I am a complete beginner to design, I have been doing illustrations for less than a year now and am experimenting with mediums and styles. I made 3 scavenger hunt boards and I can see a pattern forming in some but even after the class lack the eye to figure out what EXACTLY draws me to some of the pieces. I would love feedback on how I could use these preferences in my own work!

Contrast:

I know in a lot of these pieces I really love the contrast of simple shapes and colors with real or surreal images.  I also love the contrast of a bright color on top of greys or black and whites for a pop. The more abstract piece caught my eye and I think it was because of the dark black smear on top of everything standing out. 

Line:

I love the idea of line work roughly outlining color but not being exact. In the bottom left I liked the geometric line work partly covering the picture and partly being on white page. 

Color:

All Together, my final collage:
