Tomorrow, I'll be speaking at the Michigan Reading Association's annual conference that I mentioned in the previous post. Here is an exercise that I'll be demonstrating as part of my talk. The above three images are printouts, download here.
Here is how it works: Cut out the small, medium and large person, sun and house. Then using the third printout, put the small house on the horizon line, the medium sun at the top of the page and the large person at the bottom of the page. Which is closer the person or the house?
Now let's try something different. Put the small person on the horizon line, the medium sun at the top of the page and the big house at the bottom of the page. Which is closer now, the person or the house?
Color adds even more possibilities. For this picture I used the large, person, sun and house and I added lots of red and orange. Does the picture seem warm or cool?
What size person, sun and house did I use on this picture? What colors did I use? Is the person feeling warm or cool?
What is going on here???
There are so many different ways to make a picture. Have fun!
