For my class project I chose two elements and one principle (color, line and contrast).
I chose Pinterest to select images. I naturally love nature and all that entails, so that def played a part in my selections.
The color choices I chose told me that I enjoy vibrant, contrasting colors. Colors that stand out when placed with another color. I also see that I like placing many types of colors together. I also see, I like to play with complimentary colors.
I found that the line patterns I chose were very organic, free flowing and lacked structure. I think that is interesting, because I wasn't thinking about that at all when I was selecting images. After, I realized that I'm not a big fan of geometric shapes and I love more natural and organic types of shapes. I also see this in my current artwork.
It's also very interesting that with the colors I chose, I selected images that also have an organic movement to them. That was unexpected.
I seemed to have collected images with contrast that apply the other two elements as well. The images I selected use strong lines that are contrasted with a bold color choice. I think that it's quite comical, because I use this technique in my current work, and didn't even think of it as an option for contrast.
I found that I def love the playful usage of color. I see that I like bold lines that stand out in comparison to the color. Also, I enjoy the use of the color and sometimes going outside the lines.
I think it's nice to see that my current work, reflects these elements and principles. This project has opened my eyes to see it, even when I didn't realize it. I am really enjoying this process and am grateful to share my finds. Feedback is much appreciated. :)
