Recycled Head

I’ve been rummaging through the drawers in my studio and finding loads of prints, cyanotypes and drawings that didn’t make the grade, so I’m reusing them. It’s a pity to waste the paper because it’s good quality. This is a piece of Bockingford, around A3 size, with a cyanotype that didn’t work out. I did a quick scribble of Husb as he was working on his laptop, using black and white conte crayons and a carbon stick. I don’t like working on a pristine white surface, it’s too intimidating; working on top of old art is much easier.

    I’m all for working on existing work. It can be helpful to have some guidelines imposed – even if you did create them yourself! Lovely sketch, Rosie.

    I read that Max Ernst developed his frottage technique because he suffered from ‘artist’s block’ when faced with a pristine white canvas or paper.

      That’s an interesting story; I’m with him on that one.

      Thank you. I think that drawing over an existing image helps….
