Everyday Matters Drawing Challenge 11

Every Day Matters Challenge 11I held off sharing this as it is a bit of change from the pencil drawings. It is EDM drawing challenge prompt # 11 “Draw your glasses or sunglasses”

I started out to draw in ink but my glasses were sitting on a piece of paper and I became interested in the design aspect of the image as opposed to the representational aspect of the challenge. Before I knew it the designer in me, had placed the glasses off to one side and played a little with the negative shapes. I was particularly interested in the shape that cuts the glass rim and of course that gives it a more graphic design quality.

It is indian ink on cartridge paper. I  hope readers like the change. I will be back to pencil soon.

    The black and white, choice of angle and how it wonders my eyes off the page and back all combine into an interesting viewing experience.

    The angle really makes for such interesting viewing, Sharon. I do like the look of the ink on cartridge

      Thanks Barbara – you can tell my design background influenced me – probably it is more of a design than a drawing but that is OK
