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!

    Very nice. I am a Ralph Steadman fan too, and blotty pens!

    This is very very nice. The casual figure poses compliments the casual handling of the materials. I like this a lot. Great job!
