This preparatory sheet shows the development of digitally manipulated compositions, drawing ideas from the photographers studied. The page includes screenshots and descriptions of Photoshop tools that have been used to merge images together. Michael also includes a gallery ‘mock-up’, showing how the his work would look if hung in a gallery exhibition space. This allows him to establish a sense of scale and show the work in context.
Adding plants in the bathroom brings an instant sanctuary feel. Ladders don’t take up much space, so why not create more impact with two? Spray-painting one in a vibrant colour can bring real drama to a white scheme. Choose plants that thrive in a steamy environment and play with different textures, leaf shapes or trailing plants, plus a few flowers to break up the green. Go for pots in a mixture of sizes and shapes, but stick to one or two colours to keep the look harmonious.
