Keep At It

27 Jun

27 keep 1

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I did five drawings over 2 hours and each one was better than the last. It’s not unusual to be a bit rusty at the beginning, but you’ve got to keep at it and not get demoralised. Below are the first four drawings and above the final one. The blue ones are done on discarded cyanotype prints – not mine, I rescued them from the bin at the print workshop. I drew the others onto some nice handmade paper I bought at the Tate Gallery shop, pre-coloured with a sepia ink wash. I used a traditional dip pen and black and white Indian ink by Winsor & Newton.
