Marble Reflections

Size: 8" x 10" - Standard size for easy framing!
Medium: Prismacolor Colored Pencils
Surface: Acid-Free Archival Strathmore Artagain Paper
Style: Photorealism / Realism
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This photorealistic drawing depicts a variety of colorful marbles inside a glass tumbler. The marbles and tumbler were rendered in a tight photorealistic style (see close-up below). The shadow is done in a realistic yet slightly more expressive hand, conveying the fleeting and temporary nature of light and shadow. My conceptual interest in this piece lies in the contrast between the tactilely solid nature of the marbles and glass, juxtaposed against the soft and feathery forms of the shadows.

A border has been left around the edges of the paper to make for easy matting and framing.
