We always laugh when watching programs or movies that take place in San Francisco and they show thunder and lightening -- it's such a very rare occurrence, and we never have the kinds of storms you all have in the Midwest.
I finished another collage yesterday. It was supposed to use the golden section/mean/ratio, whatever you want to call it. Here it is:
There are some things I kind of don't get about this -- our teacher gave us some examples, and it's kind of hard sometimes to see how the composition follows the ratio. But I dove in anyway.
Here are the components I used. While I was searching around the web, I found the picture on the top left of the golden ratio, and it sure looked like an elephant's trunk to me. So I gathered up a bunch of stuff and got to work. Here's the end result, one I'm pretty happy with --
Linkup with AlphabeThursday
The text spiraling around the frame is from a description of elephants' behavior. What do you think? I like it.
So my next challenge is to replicate it in real life -- I love doing digital collages, but I'd also like to see them off the computer and be able to touch them. So I went and got some silk fabric today that I'm going to try to print an image on, and see how that comes out. Any ideas for me on how I might do this?
Hope you're having a great "hump day" --
