Snipe In The Dark Manner

Snipe 4

This is the last of the drawings I recently did at Swansea Museum as part of a day with Edinburgh artist and printmaker Kelly Stewart, organised by Swansea Print Workshop. I did loads of drawings of the Snipe and this is done in the manier noir technique on prepared paper (please click here if you want to find out more about manier noir).

I did loads of drawings – here are a few. It was great spending a whole day locked away in a room in a museum drawing. Like I’d died and gone to heaven.

    Such an interesting exploration. It seems so difficult to ‘allow’ ourselves the time for this type of exploration, yet it is such a benefit to our work and Our spirits.

      Yes, I was privileged to do this. One of my fellow artists slept from 8 – 8 afterwards!

        I can understand that. Lots of non-artists don’t understand the energy expended concentrating for hours at a time.
