The work I have done this week is start on a picture of bark and took more pictures of textures in nature.
After the critique the group decided that they liked my progress of the mushroom/pine-cone piece and that my background for tat piece should show the original picture with either lower opacity or contrast. The group liked my rose piece from the first critique and they think I should find more plants like that in the greenhouse. They thought the idea of using glass was a good idea and that maybe lighting the background behind it could be cool. They also said that my color choices are good so far and that I should not restrict myself because the main picture is very restricted by the shape styles.
