Positive Negative space work

Positive Negative space work

There it is. The one giving me grief today. I'll get all the black areas to the same value with more ink when the collaging glue is dry.

Tricky bit with collage - you lay it all out, then move the pieces to apply glue and it never quite goes back down the same way. I can see some lines went out of alignment after the gluing down. SIGH.

We started off bringing in an object to sketch from numerous angles. I brought in a rusty railroad spike. Then we created a design using 4 to 6 of our sketches and separated out the background to emphasize positive/negative space (I used overlapping concentric circles). THEN we photocopied that design in various scales and collaged it all together to make a large composition.
