I use top quality art paper in my work and I like to recycle my own and other people’s cast offs. Here’s a piece of Somerset I found in the waste bin at the print studio. It had been prepared with cyanotype chemicals but not used. It’s been hanging around in a draw for a couple of years, waiting for a subject to present itself. I had it in my bag at life drawing last week and it suited this 10 minute pose. The model was reflected in the mirror and the vertical drawings fit the large upright blocks of dark blue. I used black Indian ink with a traditional dip pen which is smudgy and blotchy, like the cyanotype.
