This work looks striking through the colour tone. Simple shapes are constructed and is adapted through the colour depth to generate a perspective. Simple line structures are also used to create a form of abstract as well as linking into architecture
WHO: Ian Murphy WHAT: Venetian Canal WHY: I like the use of mark making to add depth to the drawing. I also like the way the piece guides your eye into the vanishing point becasue of the leading lines.
