Automatic Drawing

Rhodri Davies


Husb and I went to the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery earlier today to catch Rhodri Davies doing his artist’s talk. I like to hear how other artists develop their work and of course, it’s an opportunity for me to have a scribble as well. Rhodri’s art practice is completely different from mine but I like to be challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone. Today he spoke about his work involving harps (telyn) and during the talk he played a short film that featured one of his musical compositions. I found myself completely absorbed and drawing automatically to the sounds, particularly on the beard. I used a biro (ballpoint) into my very small Laura Ashley sketchbook.

    Gorgeous drawing Rosie, fascinating that you drew to the sound of the music and it ended up in your mark making, i must try it !
