Drawing Night

8 Jun

Drawing at night isn’t too bad in the city centre, because of illumination from street and shop lighting. But on the beach, Swansea Bay, unless there’s a clear moon, there’s very little light and no clear landmarks. So drawing a deserted night scene is about interpreting the different elements of the darkness with varied materials and marks.

I used white compressed charcoal, willow charcoal and carbon into a Khadi sketchbook that I’d prepared with an Indian ink wash.
