Drawing Degenerates

I’m carrying on with my ‘Degenerates’ series of portrayals of contemporary artists that I work with. My focus is on drawing but I am also using paint as these are very large and I need to be able to cover big areas of colour. I don’t particularly like painting so I am using my fingers and bits of rag to apply the pigment in a drawingly way. Once the larger areas have been coloured in with acrylic paint, I’ll work details on top with oil bars, which should take me back into pure drawing.

Here are some close ups showing some of the finger work I have been doing on the surface of the canvas. The work will be exhibited from the end of this month at Fringe Arts Bath at the Octagon.
