EDM 7 – tin in pen

edm7-tin-900

EDM 7: Draw a bottle, jar or tin from the kitchen.

This started as a pencil sketch (there was much erasing) followed by watercolours and finally pen. I rushed the beginning of the final inking stage, just as I should have been slowing down and paying closer attention to the final effect, with the result that it’s sloppier than I intended and hoped-for close-up labyrinthian joy has been lost. Symmetrical designs are especially unforgiving. Also the perspective on the lid is wrong.

Still using the Papermate Flair (the other pens haven’t arrived yet) which isn’t waterproof, so ink goes on last.
