Over the last year, I've tried to concentrate on images i'm 100% happy with...today I depart from that. The reason I'm trying to develop a series of images that are different from most still lifes. I'm trying to link the items - tell a story. To some (Dave ) I over complicate things. And probably I do a little, but what I'm wanting is images that I can enter in Salon competitions that stand out.
This is an image very much WIP. There are 3 elements I'm not happy with, and one compositional one but I'm wanting to learn and you dont always learn from putting up the images your happy with. When I watched a recent series on TV about artists and how they worked, they frequently had working copies that lead to the finished article.
As a result there are two new items winging there way to me as we speak via eBay, and when I revisit this will hopefully be a much "fuller image" with a more direct message. I know I'm opening myself up (again) for a lot of critique - but that is honestly what I want.
At this stage I won't mention what bits I'm not happy with...
