So what is this Secret Postcard Sale? The RCA - Royal College of Art (UK) annually holds a secret postcard sale of annonymous entries which I take is not so secret and in fact rather well-publicised. At www.itsnicethat.com I found a reference NOV 24/09 to this show with the website link to the 2,700 postcard images from which I have selected one's that caught my eye. When you open the website above find the link to the rca (pale blue) and click that to bring up the 2,700 images you can look at! Seriously!
I was curious enough to do so. The images are small - one can save favourites and what I was keen to discover is how these small works would speak to me out of the myraid on show. Also fascinating is to look at the subject matter and the treatment of colour, compostion and so on in these small works.
I am always interested in what it is that makes a composition feel right in a work, whatever the size -so here is a great opportunity to see what works for you!
