It’s FAB

30 May

wordpress 30 may

I’m in Bath, invigilating an exhibition that I have some work in. It’s the 12:34 group show at FAB 3 in York Street, part of Fringe Arts Bath. I took a small easel and drawing materials to draw to pass the time. I don’t like drawing buildings, inside or out, but there wasn’t much else to do. I’ve been looking out of the window onto the Georgian rooftops of the baths, amazing architecture.It’s a good exercise in drawing what you actually see, rather than what you think you see. Common sense suggests that the white gallery walls are lighter than the view outside the window, but squinting my eyes showed that the opposite is true. I used black and white conte crayons, a traditional dip pen with Indian ink and some Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens onto a piece of recycled Bockingford paper, about size A3.

That’s one of my maniere noire drawings on the wall and I’ve included it in the drawing.

    Hi Rosie
    I do like your work….
    Thanks by the way for your comments and likes on The Broadway Drawing School FB page. Maybe you can visit us one day? We are running life drawing weekends over the summer. It would be good to meet you anyway and whenever you are in Cardiff please just stop by – coffee is always on at The Broadway!
    Best wishes
    Jac
