Seth Apter has a new DVD out that turned out to be quite a game changer for me. It is called "Top Ten Collage Principles". As it turns out it could be called Top 10 composition principles since these ideas can all be applied to painting as well.
The DVD is downloadable, which I what I did since I am so impatient to wait for the delivery of things. Anyway, they are the same and once I add it to my itunes playlist I can watch anytime I want to. I watched it through once and then I watched it again while working. There are 10 different small collages that you create. Each one represents one of the "Principles". They are not meant to be finished works of art, just samples in the event you become stuck and are finding it difficult to move forward with a piece. These are just a few of the samples I created from the class. They are each labeled on the back as to which principle they represent.
For $20 you cannot beat the price and Seth is a great teacher. For someone like me who cannot get to classes and workshops all over the world, this DVD was a really great find!
