Design Focus Friday – Scale and Proportion

Whoops! It isn’t Friday, I seem to have missed that but here’s a short post about scale and proportion. Both of the pieces that I show here are based on leaves. The one above has a different scale than the one below. What do you think the difference in scale in the two pieces makes?

Both pieces have multiple leaves, but the top piece is completely covered with “large” leaves in comparison to the size of the work. This second piece to me is more about the placement of the leaves and is entitled “Balance”. Do you use different proportions in your work? I’d love to hear about it.
