Composition of Still Life

Despite my tutor’s comment that my book work is ahead of my own work I’ve been re-reading the course notes, and have realised that an area I need to consider in more detail is composition.

The feedback made it clear that the my process left something to be desired. What to do about that, however, was still quite open. I needed some ideas on how to approach resolving the feedback satisfactorily. Continue reading “How to do Analysis and Reflection?”
