Big Cushions And DIY

22 Apr

Ink sketch.

We’v had a long weekend of D.I.Y. and we’re grubby and tired so catching some relaxation with BBC’s ‘The Voice’. Iwasn’t expecting to like it at all but Tom Jones is such a legend and Will.I.Am is delightfully funny and the standard of singing is good to spectacular. Husb is chilling out on the big settee surrounded by cushions and it’s fun to draw all the patterns and textures surrounding him. It’s not a good likeness as I was too involved in drawing all the stuff around him.

It’s nice to do a drawing like this because I can go to town on mark-making, creating patterns on a flat plane and not worrying too much about perspective. I’ve been reading Martin Gayford’s recent book about David Hockney, where he discusses how artists see and represent the world, how different it is to photography and even challenges the use of European traditions of perspective and geometry. Interesting stuff.

      Thanks Russell. He wasn’t too happy when he saw the drawing of him though lol. Ah well, you can’t get it right every time.
