Using pens I represented balance, in this case of asymmetry.
On the other hand, I used different sizes (and colours) to express the different hierarchy and to study the movement of the eyes over the construction I made, as they follow the order of hierarchy.
In this case, I concentrated on using the same shape but with different sizes to show contrast.
As for the second image, I decided to concentrate on alignment, which I tried to obtain through the flow of the lines from one piece of material to the other.
This would be another example of alignment.
Regarding the effects, this composition represents depth, Which I tried to simulate with the colors and the shapes.
Finally, to represent movement I used small squares that “roll” down a cliff.
For my homework I concentrated on using only one material in each image. For example, in this first case, using watercolor pieces I represented grouping, (three groups of three) trying to balance out the image, and in a smaller scale, symmetry. This image is also interesting because if the pieces were joined they would form a rectangle, but by separating them and playing with the empty space we create some sort of closure.
Regarding the second image, using pens I concentrated on symmetry and creating closure although it might be a very simple one.
Another material I enjoyed working with were the metal pins, with these I started by representing asymmetry and movement.
I then decided to concentrate on continuity (as the eye firsts focuses on the empty center and then move outwards following the pins), and rhythm.
Finally, returning to the watercolor pieces, they were arranged like this to represent continuity, as we start by observing from the top singular piece down diagonally.
