Project Guidelines
Create a non-objective design.
Using a small, circle view-finder, you will look through images and

select an area that has the most interest. Focus on color, line, shapes, composition, and emphasis.

You will re-create the cropped image on paper, resized to

11 inches, using a compass and pencil. Then you will add color with colored pencils. Layer colors to create depth and interest. Remember values: lights and darks. Think of which colors to use for emphasis. Dont focus on the subject of the image. This is supposed to be non-realistic or non-represenational.
