This five petal flower motif comes up often in my work.
I decided to have some fun with how the photos line up.
Love the movement created with the placement of the cut paper layout.
Working with cut paper gives me a lot of freedom to play and process ideas.
There is such strength in a motif when in silhouette. When was the last time you even thought to look at or draw something in silhouette, flowers, animals or birds? For me probably art school, an art class or workshop when they ask you to break things down to their simplest form in a drawing or painting. I should add this to my list in my Lessons Learned in Art School post.
Great to keep in mind when creating.
Give it a try, put your idea or sketch in silhouette, you will be pleasantly surprised.
