Search and Research #38
Ok, this was an experiment. I wanted this basement scene to be gloomy and dingy, and at the same time, I wanted to be able to show the clutter and boxes and stuff. I'm not so good at doing heavy shadows with lines, so I decided to try to put in gray tones with an ink wash. Once I'd started though, I realized that this was the wrong kind of paper for an ink wash! So, I did the best I could with it. The wavy look of the image is a result of the paper wrinkling because of the water on it. Anyway, enjoy!
