Out Of Practice

9 Jan


Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop and I’m a bit out of practice. We had a three week break over the holidays and it was good to get back into the discipline of anatomical study. This post is a bit difficult so I redrew it until I was reasonably happy with it. I like the pose a lot and I will probably develop it into a mixed media piece or a print.

I used a traditional dip pen and Indian ink onto an A4 piece of Bockingford that had been prepared with an acrylic ground in orange.

Husb and I are staying up late tonight because there has been a massive solar storm this week and the Aurora Borealis might reach this far South. So far it’s a very clear night so we might get lucky.

    So, did you see anything? We’re socked in with clouds and rain.

      no, we had a clear sky but it was just too far south.

    Apparently tonight’s the night for the aurora if you’re in Scotland, South Wales or parts of southern England…

    Glad I caught your post, I must look out for the aurora. I saw one here about 14 years ago but have yet to repeat it. Maybe tonight!
