Hot Public Scribbling

Drawing at Fringe Arts Bath

Drawing at Fringe Arts Bath

This is the fourth year that I have been involved in the fabulous Fringe Arts Bath, a crazy, anarchic festival of visual and performing arts, taking place all over Bath’s city centre, in empty shops, old mortuary chapels and the street. Last year and this year I was one quarter of a four part combo of artists who draw, The Plebeian Scribblers. We were part of a public access art event, A FAB Intervention, featuring 20 artists and organised by Melanie Ezra and Tim Kelly from the Swansea artscene.

It was hot but not as hot as last year and we found some shade to stand and draw. I drew into my A3 bound sketchbook that I had prepared by sticking ripped pieces of brown wrapping paper into it with Pritt stick glue and I drew with conté crayons in black and sanguine along with some white chalk and a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S.

The drawing on the left is a reflection in a large shop window, difficult to draw, to decide what to focus on; what’s important to the drawing because there’s so much going on. More drawings tomorrow……

 

I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.
