'I Did It With Mirrors'
17cm x 24cm
Pastel Pencils & Coloured Pencil on Paper
This seemed like a really good idea when I thought of it. Two eggs in plain egg cups on two mirrors. Turned out to be a bit of a mindbender, plus the fact I'd decided to try out a new medium - I've never used pastel pencils (or any other pastels for that matter) before this. Having said that I enjoyed doing it and I think bits of it work really well. I like the way the eggs came out, it's almost an airbrushed effect and I like bits of the background too. A bit disappointed with the egg cups, they are in fact white ceramic but look like stainless steel here. I think it's because I lost my nerve and opted for coloured pencil instead of sticking to pastel pencil... There's a softness about the pastel effect I like and I'll certainly be coming back to it.
Also decided to have a go at the August Virtual Sketch Date (link on the right) which should keep me busy for a while this week...
