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 I  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.
