Not As Simple As It Seems

I have been enjoying the Käthe Kollwitz exhibition at Swansea’s Glynn Vivian Art Gallery and I bought the exhibition book. I wanted to study her woodcut technique in more detail so I laid a black ground in the Markers drawing app on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet and then drew into it with white brush and line functions, to emulate the lines she had originally cut into a block of wood. When you look at the original, it seems very, very simple but when you study it and try to copy it, it’s a lot more complicated than it appears.
