I have a selection of unusual soaps, by scent, color and composition - lovely to set out for guests. Of course I rarely use them .
For this EDM #101 I selected two contrasting bars and placed them in a white plate to study. I sat them on the table and looked down at the angle represented in the photo. After sketching, I wished I had viewed them from a more level angle - BUT - the bars are fairly represented. I also tried to create the plate solely with shadows. An interesting study as almost all EDM challenges are for me.
