I was working on brown paper and it is giving my much more texture than the bond (duh). Indeed the paper is too white, even though I still like stark white on black too.
For the drawing component I'm not sure I even want to do the original thing - it's just so...colourful. Last semester colour was everything, now I just feel very black and white and brown. Still have to psyche myself up to do the brightly coloured collages. I am even thinking about putting it off for another project, but I'll try it again even after the last disaster and see where it goes where I want it to. Sometimes I cannot dictate the work... it does it on its own. Ok that's most of the time.
