Sometimes adding two images together is the answer. Or not. I’m still undecided. I like the leaf cuts and I also like the developing filbert clusters. After playing around with the printer, tracing paper, shrinking & enlarging, I might have found a possible answer for this panel. Below is the 8″ x 8″ hand cut paper piece.
More to ponder now that it’s done. Probably a bit too fussy and I should just stick to the leaf composition and keep the filbert clusters to their own. Yes, it’s become overly complex for viewing at a distance….
Time to start work on the next panel: Wheat. I’ll revisit the filberts in a few weeks.
And for those wondering what I’m using for paper: The red is Canson and the black is Strathmore. All cuts are via my trusty XACTO Blade.
And yes, this is still part of the design process for an upcoming public art work to hang in Halsey, Oregon, thanks to The Arts Center of Corvallis.
