These are gorgeous! The return of blazing color – I needed that! I really like pairing the packaging fragments with those colors; I think most people would have desaturated the whole thing, made it black and white or sepia, and this is much more interesting.

Thanks Lynn. I actually tried some of these in b&w but they didn’t hold together in a way that worked for me.
You could teach a color theory class with these, esp that first one – those complementary colors – the orange & blue, the pinky red and green, just great.
Ha. I could but alas I don’t have an MFA or PHD — nor can I articulate why I make the choices I do other than to say it just looks right to me.
But thanks for the vote of confidence anyway, Can I use you as a reference?
Like Ken said, it seems that with so many colors, it could easily have gone off the rails. “It just looks right” – yeah, isn’t that the truth? That’s why we’re not teaching art, and that’s good enough for me!
Don’t get me started on the pretentiousness and mediocrity of many photographers who teach in higher ed and have inflated reputations in the art world :)
These are some very interesting mashups. With the number of vivid colors, I imagine it was difficult to get such pleasing arrangements.
I took color theory years ago. The only thing I remember is that blue and yellow is a nice combination. It served me well. though.
Thank you Ken. Interestingly enough, getting pleasing compositions was more of a challenge than dealing with the colors. Several just ended up on the cutting room floor as mishmashes rather than mashups :)
