In Someone Else’s Zone

Husb and I went to a performance drawing event at the excellent local artspace, Creative Bubble, this evening to see artist Glan Jenkins working on a new drawing. I draw all the time so I’m used to being completely in the zone, cut off from the rest of the world as I get immersed in the emotional and physical experience of drawing. But this was the first time I have become immersed in someone else’s drawing experience. I was in the zone as Glan worked on his giant drawing and it was great to feel like that and yet have clean hands at the end. Result!

I scribbled as Glan drew, into my A5 hardbacked sketchbook with graphite sticks in three colours – black, grey and gold. It’s always a challenge to draw figures in movement, I find that I end up working on a composite as it’s impossible to draw quickly enough to capture a fleeting movement.
