Long Day And Night Of Art

15 Aug

It’s been a long day, doing art. First off, I was with my colleagues from the art collective, 15 Hundred Lives, at the Creative Bubble artspace in Swansea, doing what artists do all day, making art. People usually see art in its finished state, framed and hung on a wall in an intimidatingly white gallery. We want to make art much more accessible to the public and also let people see just how complicated and long the creative process is. I spent the day constructing a large drawing in chalk and charcoal, with a touch of chalky pastels, onto brown parcel paper. Tomorrow I’ll be adding a second layer to the drawing and extending it across the wall with a translucent paper overlay. My colleagues worked on a large painting and a wall-sized collage.

And then this evening I went to life drawing group, but I’ll save that for another blog. Tired now, going to bed. Goodnight 🙂
