So there I was, busily working on a piece for an exhibition. Lots of ideas, lots of images, fooling around with composition, trying to decide how much to explain, how much to trust the piece to explain itself. It was going well, most of the handwork done. I just needed to check the final dimensions before trimming the edges and deciding whether to face or bind. I wasn't quite satisfied with one of the images, a teenage girl in the early 20th century.
Well, there's plenty of time before the entry deadline. I've re-thought the piece (without phototransfers this time), keeping the basic concept and composition. It's coming out better in this version. This is one of those exhibitions where I can't show the piece until acceptances are announced, so no sneak peeks here. But there shouldn't be a problem with a sneak peek of the image I didn't use.
Live and learn.
