A Place In Space

Place in Space

I’m just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I’ve been working with a middle-aged female model, I really enjoy drawing her. I started out with a quick sketch into my A3 brown paper spiral bound sketchbook from Seawhites of Brighton. I used a stub of white conté crayon, used on it’s side, the flat edge rather than the point. I wanted, in this sketch, to place the model in space, to get used to how she occupied the space around her before going on to a more detailed drawing. I really like the simplicity of this, it reminds me of Paleolithic female sculptures.

    I love this, Rosie. As you say, like a bass line that you could either embellish or leave to its own solid majesty. Oddly I did something similar on Wednesday evening with a piece of charred wood and got so carried away I forgot to really look at the model. I was soundly told off by the teacher!

      Haha I think sometimes you have to do what your instinct tells you 😀

    Has a really solid feel despite simplicity. Because it’s art?

      I think it’s like the bass in a rock song. Adding linework is when the lead guitar comes in.
