Recycle and Reed

Here’s the last drawing I did at the most recent life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I worked on a piece of paper that had an image by an artist who has been working at Mission Gallery. Shaun James had produced a load of drawings and was giving them away. So I took a couple and thought I’d recycle one by working his abstract imagery in with my figurative drawing. I like to work onto paper that’s had something done to it – I don’t like the tyrrany of white space. I did a quick drawing of our model using a thick reed pen and Indian ink. The paper is about size A3 so the pen was rather big for it, but I like the way that forced me to keep the detail to a minimum and the line simple.
