Responding To A Story

I went to the Glynn Vivian art gallery last week, to do some live drawing at an event involving poets, storytellers and musicians. I normally draw directly from life but I went right out of my comfort zone for this one, allowing the words, music and spoken rhythms to flow into my hands and direct the marks I made onto vintage paper with Daler Rowney artists pastels. This drawing was done in response to David Pitt’s story about a caged songbird and a desert.
