Today we have a winner from one of our previous Strokes of Genius art competition, Strokes of Genius 2: The Best of Drawing Light and Shadow, Edmond S. Oliveros’s Reflections (Grand Central Terminal, NYC).

Best of Drawing Edmond Oliveros Reflections

Pen and ink on Mylar  |  16″ x 12″ (41cm x 30cm)

Here’s what Edmond S. Oliveros says about his artwork:

I love architectural details, especially neoclassical ones. My photo reference was taken from a window of one of the offices along 42nd street, looking at the beautiful and ornate crown of the Grand Central Terminal. I was excited to see the building, with the rest of the cityscape, reflected on the glass curtain wall of the Grand Hyatt. I envisioned the finished art in black and white, so I drew it in tight pen and ink. I drew on Mylar to produce different shades of black; the ink appears lighter when you let the pen glide quickly, and darker when you press a little harder. This is a classic approach in ink drawing where the highlights are not delineated with any outline.

Edmond S. Oliveros’s piece Reflections (Grand Central Terminal, NYC) appeared in Strokes of Genius 2: The Best of Drawing Light and Shadow, published by North Light Books in 2009. Enter the competition here for your chance to appear in Strokes 5 & win other prizes!
