I’ve been so busy with work at the moment that i’m falling behind on the deadline I set for this assignment. I’ve been fretting over a suitable subject that I feel will demonstrate the 4 main characteristics of; shape, form, texture and colour. I spent the last 3 evenings practically ransacking my flat looking for some interesting pieces of ‘junk’ that will make an interesting subject, but no joy.
I decided on using a very interesting labradorite ring. Labradorite has the most interesting shades of blue/green/ when it catches the light, so I thought I was on to a winner! Unfortunately that wasn’t the case. The ring is not a large subject, and I felt that my subject should be bigger so I can experiment more with the lighting. Also, as it is silver the texture/surface is extremely shiny and even the most diffused lighting resulted in some degree of glare. For now, it’s back to the drawing board to find another subject.
This was an attempt at demonstrating colour using the labradorite ring.
