A Bit Of Colour

25 Jan

After a couple of days of live art and big drawing, I’ve had a quieter day doing some cataloguing. It’s one of those menial admin tasks that’s so boring but it’s important to keep track of the work I’ve done, some of it going back years. As I worked I rediscovered stuff I’d forgotten about. Here are some life drawings of a male nude model that I did a few years ago using watercolour instead of my usual drawing pen. I don’t much like using naturalistic colour, I don’t really see the point, so I play around with it. I used some very sturdy sable brushes, jabbing at the paper to give a chunky effect.

    Lovely group of drawings. I have given up cataloguing my life drawings – once I used to scan them all in and give them a number, but I hardly ever sell them. I mostly try to think about them now more as a learning process with the actual drawing as a by-product, but then I don’t think I spend the time on them that you do. Had to have a big cull on them a couple of years ago. Do you sell life drawings much?

      No, not at all. Most of them are in sketchbooks and I don’t like to split them up. But I wanted to keep a record for insurance purposes and also because I often use them as the basis for further work, so it’s good to have them to hand in an easy format 🙂
