1 Re­fle ction

“I was in­trigued by the con­trast in colour and tem­per­a­tures be­tween the shad­ows and the more monochro­matic lights. For this com­po­si­tion I de­cided to sim­plify the shapes as much as pos­si­ble.”

2 Se­cre t

“In this piece I cre­ated vol­ume and depth by wrap­ping high­light­ing strokes around the form. The coloured pen­cil was used for softer edges and tran­si­tions in the shad­ows, to help con­vey a sense of mys­tery.”

3 Sor­cha

“I played with lost and found edges in this draw­ing. Edge con­trol is the most valu­able artis­tic tool to guide the viewer’s eye. Hard edges draw at­ten­tion, while soft or lost edges give the eye a place to rest.”
