This is my other best piece from my design class. My inspiration was a story I had to read in high school; The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins. It’s about a woman who is confined to her room/country home because of a perceived madness and depression. But, the confinement actually makes it worse. She begins to see a woman in the horrible yellow wallpaper in her bedroom. To achieve this effect I overlaid the design with tracing paper.
This is contrast of saturation. It’s a contrast of tones and tints. I explored the color yellow.
