Ink Victorian Fashion
During a critique on my charcoal drawings it was suggested that I work with ink. I had a lot of fun for a week playing with the material. Unfortunately, I did not do my explorations on water color paper and so had my paper wrinkled after the fact.
This work went into critique and did not fair well. It was stated that the artwork did not matter, nor did it have a strong enough concept. Although I do not fully agree with these statements, I found that it did get me thinking. My artwork here is an enjoyment of form and shape as well as an escape into a time gone by. I have since taken a very different turn in my artwork. This will be explained in a later post.
