Greetings From Hartford by Trinh

I have always been very impressed with black and white pictures and photographs. I enjoy looking at them because they are pleasing to my eyes and simply the classic of all classics. This is the reason why I steered toward such a simplistic color scheme in this project.

I started this project by sketching my hand as though it was in the middle of doing a drawing. I liked the idea of drawing a picture inside of a picture. I therefore decided to further develop this idea. I used perspective drawing to create buildings inside of what is supposed to be a postcard. Then, I later carved away the hand and the details within the postcard. This left an abundant amount of white space. The result is an extreme black contrasting with a stark white. It creates an intense but classic look. I am thrilled with the result and cannot wait for another project to come along.
