For this subjective exercise I chose the theme of an eye to draw.
There are lots of objects related to eyes from drawings, authors, and photographs. I think it is quite easy to get thoughts and themes about this object, but how will this one be amazing and awesome that is my challenge.
A list of a series of words from research google:
Then I decided to work with the word “transparency” (I also circled “sorrowful” to accompany it.)
At the moment the main factors which influence the environment are: exhaust fumes, pollution and CO2. We don’t always take into consideration the effect we have on the environment, like driving a car with a cold engine for a short trip without any planning about the way we live.
I’d like to dedicate this exercise to protect the environment.
For my moodboard I have got a Yorkshire living magazine and made a collage with it
Method 1: I have drawn a big eye first, then put the Yorkshire view scenery on to clear plastic. Finally I put the clear plastic on the paper with the picture of the big eye. Feels a bit smudged.
Method 2: I tried another way. I drew the Yorkshire scenery first then used marker pen for CD’s to draw the big eye on the clear plastic. Finally I put them together. A bit better I think.
Method 3: I tried draw it straight away.
Method 4: I drew it on a cartridge watercolour page.
Overall I felt that I did not have complete control over the effect I wanted. I wanted the colours outside the circle of the eye to be lighter coloured.
