Picking Up The Ambience

7 Oct

I spent a couple fo hours at the Glynn Vivian art gallery on Saturday morning, drawing at a spoken word event, @peoplespeakup, which was part of the Swansea Fringe, with Rufus Mufasa, David Pitt and Eleanor Shaw amongst others. I like drawing in public, I think it’s good for people to be able to see how an artist works. When people go into a gallery and see perfect works of art on a white wall, they don’t get to appreciate all the hard work, practice, mistakes and rubbish drawings that preceded it.

I did some warm up drawings in my sketchbook, using a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen and the continuous line technique. This helped me to centre myself in the space and pick up on the ambience of the surroundings.
