A couple of years ago I did a doodle on the computer of me wearing my old red glasses. The idea was to draw it as if I was using a scraper board …. you know scratching through a black surface to reveal a metallic coloured base layer.
The red really stands out on this drawing (which has been duplicated in layout).
I think artists need to experiment, even if its just little ideas that get the cogs going in your brain!
Red glasses hide your eyes behind
Thick glass, makes you think?
Makes your thought opaque, hidden,
Eyes glint under the red frame,
Pale thoughts unbidden.
Will they see the real you,
will they feel your thoughts?
Reveal yourself by showing your eyes..
The pain, the fear, the dark.
