Day 3: A Face In The Dark

I had insomnia again this morning and I’ve decided that instead of reading, I’ll grab my Tablet and have a scribble. This is what came out of my fevered imagination in the early hours. I’m posting a drawing a day into the Facebook February drawing challenge, ‘28 Drawings Later‘ so the sleepless scribbles will come in handy. I used a free app called Magic Marker for this.

Embrace The Blottage

Here’s the last of the four drawings I did at last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I’d set myself the task of using different materials for each drawing. In this final one I used a recycled cyanotype that hadn’t quite worked out and a traditional dip pen with Indian ink. These pens tend to be scratchy and blot a lot. I like this effect, it reminds me of one of my favourite artists, Ralph Steadman.

Embrace The Blottage!
