I have found many images showing the devastation of recent floodings. I compiled some of these into this collage.  these images Will be useful when coming to designing the animation as they will keep my art rooted in reality. From studying these pictures along with others I have taken note on designing a foreground midground and background. The best pictures I’ve seen have taken advantage of each of these to show different parts of destruction. the center photo is the best example of this. the buss is right in the center and also red which makes its significance obvious among the natural tones. in the midground, you can see people wading through the flooded streets. While in the background buildings can be seen equally drenched.

What I’ve found interesting is that the colors in photography of flooded areas stay relatively similar no matter where in the world they have been taken. the majority if the photo is taken up by grey water. the rest is foliage and buildings. however, these drab shades get broken up with bursts of bright colors.
