This is actually my second try on this class. I enjoyed the lessons and got a lot new input - masking with the pen-tool, never thought of that. It came to a surprise to me, that my problems did not lay in the techniques, but in the design itself. Monocolor background + form just did not work for me. I love Marcos Collage and all the other projects, though. Guess my painterly background gets in the way this time. Will need a few more tries for a different approach.

In both collages I tried to use textures. Inspired by color grids in newspapers I mostly worked woth dots and paper-structure to tie everything together and make it look less "clean".

 

 

So this i is my second artwork for this project. Personaly I really love the colors and I am happy with both collages in the end. Thank you Marco. I will keep my eyes open for your lessons.
