TWINCHIES ON MONDAY - MIRROR

It's Monday again and time for another TW(INCHIE).  Our topic this week is MIRROR -- not an easy one for me, doing these entirely in Prisma Color pencils and pen and ink. Glass is not easy to portray anyway but mirrors with their reflections in only 2 inches square is quite a challenge.  So I gave it some thought and decided on this:

A mirror image...you don't have to look very hard to see what I've done with this.  It was inspired by an ad for United Airlines which I saw more than a year ago and have been wondering ever since how I could use their idea.  The ad used two plants side by side that made a silhouette of two faces. I think the point of the ad had something to do with communication, but I don't remember the details now.  So I wonder if it was a good ad since I only remember the picture and not the message.  I didn't realize what it was at first, but after looking once or twice I saw it.

The last time I saw something like that was on the balustrade of a balcony. Nice job. I love prismacolor pencils. I think they are the best.

This is lovely, Chris - images like this always fascinate me.

I am fascinated of the different "layers" of your twinchie. First I saw the cats than I saw the birds. And the water can be a mirror too. Wonderful.
