Learning to balance shapes and arranging space within the frame.
Seeing the lines, the tones and shapes
and choosing what to include and what to exclude.
In this image I love the bright colours and the textures and the way they compliment each other.
In this image I felt that the round ventilation grid gives a welcome focal point and the shape works with the straight lines in most of the other elements. The curtains with their design and side frill also soften the lines.
I love this one because of the different shapes, the muted colours and the depth of field.
The sun shining on the shelves also adds warmth and shadows.
I am attracted to reflections and like the vertical lines and their reflection in the window and the coloured spaces: white, pink and green balanced by what was excluded from the frame.
I was attracted to this image because of the sheer impact of the colours in the afternoon sun, how the peeling brown paintwork reveals a natural wood colour which echoes the colour chosen for the shutters.
I also love the shadows of branches from a tree which break up the vertical lines.
