Begin by sketching the outline of an object and then ruling blue horizontal lines across the piece of paper, stopping at the edge of the object, simulating the lines on a page. Contour lines are drawn curving up and over the surface of the object, with tone added to help emphasize the form of the object.
Lee Gainers work is organic in its appearance, like a field of flowers, but created from many bits of man-made materials. Each took just over a month to build. Pieces contain a variety of recycled - upcycled - materials such as fabric, paper, felt, foil, caps, carpet, metal, plastic, styrafoam, dried paint, beads, padding and cardboard, that have been hand-rolled into circles and swirls. Beautiful way to turn ordinary everyday objects into art. upcoming projects
