Tampered With…

20 Feb


On Sunday, I went to a Women’s Creative Salon in Swansea, with a group brought together by the artist Fern Smith. Fern is a recipient of a Creative Wales Award and has organised “Seven Sundays in Spring: All The Women I’ve Ever Met“, inviting women that she’s encountered throughout the course of her life to engage in these consecutive creative Sundays in Wales  and England.

The sketches I did on Sunday were challenging because I wanted to be fully involved in the creative conversations and activities but also wanted to do credible drawings. I drew into an A4 hardbacked sketchbook that I’d prepared by sticking brown wrapping  paper onto the pages with Pritt stick.  I prefer to work on paper that has been tampered with in some way. A pristine white page is terrifying!

      Thanks Aletha ☺ I don’t like drawing straight onto white paper

    Nice work. Is that brown paper glued on white?

      Thanks Hansi. It is, brown parcel paper stuck on at random with a Pritt Stick ☺

    I do love the swatch of brown paper, it really adds dimension to the flat surface. Wonderful drawings.

      Thank you, Sharon. I find that I am less inhibited when the paper isn’t a uniform white.
