Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


Discovering the magic of doodling was quite fun and rewarding. They are the ‘masterpieces’ of my doodling works in this challenge.

This project was about exercising the principle elements of design (unity, balance, emphasis, etc.) If you are interested in making it, the task was to make 2×2 squares, doodle random things into the squares; make photocopies of the squares, reduce them to 1×1 (by 50%), cut, arrange the squares into three 8′ x 8′ compositions that illustrate – bilateral symmetry, Asymmetry, and Radial symmetry.
