The Hat And The Fox

1 Jun

FAB 7 8

Here’s the final pair of drawings I made during Fringe Arts Bath last Saturday. Working with an ad hoc group of artists, The Plebeian Scribblers, we did some sessions of performance drawing in the street during A FAB Intervention, curated by Melanie Ezra and Tim Kelly. The drawing on the left features the hat of fellow Plebeian Scribbler, Melvyn Williams and on the right, the back of Lynne Bebb‘s head wearing a bespoke needle-felted fox mask by Ann Lucas. I prepared my A3 bound sketchbook with brown parcel wrapping paper, stuck in with Pritt stick glue and drew with conté crayons in black, sanguine and white with fine line work in Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S.

Fox In The Street.

FAB 3 4

I spent last Saturday drawing in the street at A FAB Intervention, a public art event in Fringe Arts Bath. I am part of an ad hoc group called The Plebeian Scribblers and four of us drew in unison in the centre of Bath, giving passers by the opportunity to see artists in action. I did 8 drawings in all, here are the third and fourth, a generic street scene and a close up of fellow Plebeian Scribbler, Patricia McKenna-Jones, who happened to be wearing a fox mask by Swansea artist Ann Lucas. I prepared my sketchbook in advance by pasting in pieces of brown wrapping paper. We stuck to a very strict timescale, changing position every 7.5 minutes so each drawing was done quickly which forced me to focus on the absolute essentials of the subject. It’s good practice for not getting too precious about your work.

A FAB Intervention was organised and curated by Swansea artists Melanie Ezra and Tim Kelly.
