OP Art

In this art piece, I created an Optical Illusion (Op Art). The idea of this piece is that the individual sections are popping forward. To create this illusion, I colored the different section and went over the "bump" area of the column with either white or a shade lighter. I also added shadows with a closer but darker color, added more pressure to the colored pencil, or added black to the edges. As I was working, I discovered that adding white over a light color does not create the effect I wanted. To problem solve, I lightly shaded the highlight area and added more pressure as I went out. I also learned that simple ideas take time to create no matter how simple it seems.
