When I started it my plan was to make it into a triptych and trim the edges, hence they are more untidy than ususal but now I looking at it and think I like the wavy edges with the bars of prefelt "threatening" the escape the frame.
It is still an enormous 1.9m x 1m (6' x 3') despite being quite firmly fulled (I don't want to full it any further for risk of losing the details and muting the colours).
I also quite like it in the other orientation, I especially like the wavy edge at the bottom, it reminds me of ripped paper...
If I trim it, I expect it to look something like this:
And as a triptych -
Version 1 landscape:
Triptych version 1 portrait:
Triptych version 2 landscape:
Triptych version 2 portrait:
I am racked with indecision about where to go with this piece. What do you think? Do you prefer the portrait or landscape orientation? Which of the triptychs is most aesthetically pleasing? Or should I scrap the triptych idea altogether and revel in the torn paper effect?
