Black To White

Had a day at Swansea Print Workshop, working with a group of other artists during Open Access sessions. The organisation receives very little public funding and is mostly run by it’s member / volunteers, so I spent quite a bit of my time there today on the sort of admin tasks that are frustratingly uncreative, but need to be done. I managed to find about 20 minutes, though, to do a bit of sketching and did these couple of scribbles of one of my fellow artists as he was slaving over a hot lightbox.

I used a white conte crayon into a Daler Rowney spiral bound black sketchbook, size A4. I find it quite hard to work from black to white but IĀ  like the result. The top one is the better likeness, they were both drawn from difficult angles, but it’s very good practice.

    Very nice drawings. I like the almost-abstractness of the lower one especially. And I sympathise with the admin – I am president of an art society, which mostly I enjoy, but it does absorb a lot of time!

      Thank you. Yes, it’s difficult keeping arts organisations going, lots of volunteers.
