IDEA DEVELOPMENT: In this exercise find a picture or photo that is visually interesting to you. Take time to actually look at and analyze the forms which are in this picture. Everything that you see has an identity. You can name it or if you can not name it you can describe it in visual terms. (Like saying it is 'a long pale yellow area or shape'.)
