Here are the four final pieces, cut out of construction paper and glued to 8″x10″ bristol
I chose 1, 2, and 4 because they reminded me of landscapes and had an interesting sense of depth. I chose 3 because it was simple but interesting, and I liked the way the top line mimicked the outer curve of the spiral.
General: Figure-ground reversal is when the negative space can begin to feel like positive space, and the other way around. Craftsmanship is important, and paper edges need to be smooth and level. No stray pencil marks or bits should be present. The focal point should be clear, and should normally be away from the center of the page.
Specific: Piece #3- has figure-ground reversal which is good, good line quality, interesting shapes created. Piece #4- good curves in the background, top edge should not be the perforated torn out edge, should be trimmed.
