WDE 1-7-17 Iron Lamp challenge MI


Filter added via Photoshop for more abstract composition for the challenge.
I used this as a guide for a mixed media piece below.


5.75x8.5 matboard using grey Pitt pen, black India ink, Montana markers, Carb Othello pastel charcoal pencil, white acrylic, and Staedtler pigment liner 0.3. Total time about 1.5 hours Thanks Kay!
C&C welcome

Wonderful contrasts and that lamp almost seems to be moving through space! It has a slightly eerie mood. Makes me think of Edward Gorey. And I love reading your list of media!

Great work Kay! I like the grey tones and the intersting shapes in the walls, it gives it quite a mood. I like the way the lamp is framed too. Thanks for joining in and for showing your work process

thanks for showing how you got to the end result...which I like very much.
It has a desolate abandoned mood somehow

This is interesting. The colors suit your treatment of the subject, and create a unique mood

So different for you Kay! Dramatic with those strong contrasts.
