Finger Blobs

5 Sep


I drew this head at the life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop a couple of evenings ago. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and loaded a photo of some marbling I’d done as the background to the drawing. I used the free Markers app. I wanted to break away from detailed ‘traditional’ drawing for once, I realise that I can be very tight with my drawing. I used my fingers as well as the stylus to create the lines.

The fingertips leave blobby marks and I liked the look of the stylus lines overlaid across the finger blobs. The slideshow traces the development of the drawing.

    Its so good to let go and try something different at any stage. Our sketch group met yesterday and as always the best part is comparing our books to see subject and treatment varying from person to person.
