Testing out the ideas first in Photoshop, I wanted to see if I could experiment more with how the images are laid out on the canvas. I used a filter for the first layer of the bowls, to highlight, give the bowl’s marking and shadows more depth and tone. In my opinion, I feel like there’s still a lot more I could work on for this bit, in reflection to the previous post. I still need to consider the space more, and how I want to put forward my initial idea.
I want to see how I go about this by hand collaging the objects in on the paper, and see where it takes me next.
It’s also very difficult to tell what the bowl is, or what the bowl is about. I may try laying the image of the bowl in different positions to see if it comes across better.
I chose to work with the green, as gathered from my client that she likes that colour in particular, not only that, when I start to consider the topic of fruit or even decay, I automatically think of muted tones or greens. There’s an earthy vibe.
Also, I decided to position this poster to a landscape position, because whenever you’re viewing a bowl, it’s always sitting landscape. Even the overall shape of a bowl, covers that orientation.
