My first piece for my Honors class. There was a lot of worry about starting this piece, and there's still a lot of imperfections, but over all, it's not something I do generally, so for that fact, I'm happy with how it turned out. Circles are such a pain to keep perfect when you're painting them. x_x
The idea of this piece was to portray a steam machine without directly drawing one. So I've tried to grab the essence of the technology, and use it to get the feeling of the machine. I made the copper oxidized to show the age and wear of the tech, seeing as how it's not really used anymore, and highly inefficient.
I used watercolor, gouache, acrylic and a bit of white ink on this.
