I am having a blast drawing into real thumbprints for the next collage in my everyday series. (Not sure of the name, but it’s the series that includes the leftover socks from the laundry.) It’s part of a work in progress.
The roundness of their lines — the raised lines and those in between. The roundness of the overall shapes the lines make. The shades of gray involved. I love it all.
My work here is to give them just enough weight and just enough transparency to blend with the rest of the elements.
