The Scribbled Figure

5 Dec

I tried out a different approach to life drawing the other evening, at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m working into a large A2 size brown paper sketchbook with soft Rembrandt pastels. My drawings are usually quite representational but this time I loosened up and had a scribble. It made me look at the model in a different way, identifying the patches of colour on her skin rather than details.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    Interesting! I remember in a life drawing class one time we had to draw only in contours–depict the limbs, trunk, head, all in wavy lines showing pseudo 3 dimensional proportions. It really required some hard looking!

      Oh yes, I loved doing that. Art college was the best time of my life

    Good idea. There’s also drawing with two pencils, or other media, at the same time.
