Bath Building

I spent a couple of days in Bath earlier this week, invigilating at the Commensalis group show at the Octagon, part of Fringe Arts Bath. It’s a long day so I entertained myself by drawing on my Galaxy Tablet Note 8. The Octagon is a beautiful old chapel. I don’t generally draw buildings, I’m much more familiar with anatomy, but it’s nice to have a change.

I use a lot of continuous line drawing technique when I am drawing buildings.

Draw Draw Draw: Feet to the Fore

Ink drawing: My husband's feet.

 

Call me old-fashioned but I draw almost every day and I make no apologies for that. I believe that drawing underpins visual art and that all artists should draw regularly to constantly improve what we do. Sometimes at the end of a long day I don’t really feel like sketching and it’s more out of duty than anything else and this is when feet come in really handy [see what I did there] as they’re never far away and they stay put, so I have quite a few drawings of my feet …… and my husband’s. It’s good practice because they’re not easy to draw so you get some anatomy and perspective practice as well. These ink drawings are in my sketchbook and they’re drawn using the continuous line technique with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens.
