A State Of Grace

9 Mar


Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop.It’s late and I’m tired, but it was a joy to draw this model, to lose myself in the act of drawing and forget that I’m shattered, my feet hurt and my back’s aching. It’s like entering a state of meditation – or a state of grace depending on your world view. I drew with black, sanguine and white conté crayons onto a large-ish (A2) piece of brown wrapping paper over about 45 minutes. I like the style (it’s like I was channelling Frank Brangwyn), although I think the forehead is too high.

Last night was the opening of Swansea’s International Women’s Day exhibition at Cinema & Co. It was fantastic but I’m too tired to blog about it now – I’ll do it tomorrow.
