For my bookmark, I wanted to create a simple composition using a limited color palette while still experimenting with multiple materials. First, I rolled on ink in the background to develop texture and have a larger range of values. I chose to use black ink because I also plan to incorporate black and white photographs into my book and I wanted to have a sense of unity between the bookmark and actual book. In addition, I added circles that vary in thickness to fill up the space and make your eye move around the piece. I drew a leaf using ink to relate to the photograph I took, below the leaf, of the lake, and to relate to the overall theme of my book which is looking at the relationship between nature and the city. The last thing I did to the background was add some watercolor drips to create more contrast and lead your eye to the focal point, my photograph. I positioned my photograph off center, over layers of thin paper that created more patterns and contrast to make the piece more interesting to look at and follow the rule of thirds. Overall, I'm satisfied with the result. To further relate to my book's theme, I believe that I could possibly add an image of the city I've taken.
