Drawing everyday objects

From the the selection of illustrators previous, I’m interested in experimenting with line variations and block colour to create a tone or atmosphere in my images. I started here with a pen drawing of a kitchen cabinet. The clean crisp lines appleal visually and could work well combined with pop colours. Its interesting to learn that the heavier indian ink drawing has a retro feel or tone, certainly less of a contemporary impression. I wanted to see how the mood of the image changes with colour.  The colours used in the third image give a very different atmosphere, much livelier. This is interesting to see, however I think the pen drawing is a stronger image without the broken lines.
