This sketch I think goes into the “interesting experiment” pile. Apart from sketching some ear rings and a ring, what was I trying to do? I have been thinking about the the back grounds and layout of the page spread. I am not sure if this works. I was wanting to not use shadows to give a sense of depth but to create a sense of space with some sort of framing device. One one hand I quite like the abstract lines as they are simple and create an interesting page but I think it would have been better if the objects had shadows. I am not sure how I feel about it hence the “interesting experiment”. I would love to hear what people think and it’s OK to say interesting but you have done better!
This sketch was prompted by #8 on the EDM challenge list it reads: Draw your watch or other piece of jewellery. This is also a prompt for another facebook group called A sketch a Day which for day 5 suggests we draw something that starts with the letter J. I am using a Strathmore mixed media sketchbook which is 5.5 in x 8.5 in (14 x 21.6 cm). This sketch is done using artist pitt pens and watercolour paint.
