I used contrast as my main compositional device in this drawing. I used the white rocks against the gloomy brown ground to create emphasis on the man-made orderliness of the rocks. The stark, gutter-like stone formation also aids in this composition to further contrast chaotic nature with structure.
For this drawing, I used the stark geometric aspect of the train tracks to contrast the organic forms of the plants. I used lights, figure, and long exposure to create ephemeral marks and to almost capture the essence of this assignment. By using the long exposure, the marks I was making were actually disappearing as I was making them.
