Chipped Paint – Organic Shapes

I learned a lot about what makes a stable/obvious figure ground relationship and what makes an ambiguous one, but also how some times it could be argued as both. I learned about how orientation, cropping, and how much detail you want to include can make difference in either. The only thing I would have liked to do better is perhaps get a second inking pen; I was not ready for how much ink I was going to need. One of the most important critiques I got was on the orientation of the Obvious Figure-Ground Relationship piece and how in putting it vertically, I could create a more concrete relationship with that of the Ambiguous piece.
