from my sketchbook
These are wonderful drawings, so intense.
Thanks Anna – these are all intended for larger drawings but I am really struggling with
the difference in scale.
Love this first image especially. Nice to see the detail in the large image. Thanks!
Thanks Kevin – I really appreciate the comments and encouragement.
Yes, going up is often harder than reducing! As most of my work is small (but I instinctively draw large) I am usually removing information from my initial drawings, rather than adding. It would be a shame to lose the immediacy you have in these drawings, but I am sure you will succeed!
thanks Kevin – struggling to resolve this first drawing into a larger drawing – more to come on this 🙂
Anna – you are absolutely right – I have lost the immediacy – and ended up with some stilted parodies – but will keep on working it
thanks for your encouragement.
wow fabulous work
Thanks Rosie appreciate you stopping by
It’s interesting. I suspect your sculptures lose something of their power in being captured in a flat image. But your drawings stand out with a solidity and presence that is sculptural in nature.
Thanks for your comments – and a very interesting observation about the sculpture – I probably need to spend more time on the setting up images and lighting etc. and perhaps this would help with the impact? Something for me to think about and try to resolve.
It wasn’t a criticism of the sculpture but a comment on how impressed I am with the drawings. No, the way to see the sculpture is in real life. Your photos are fine.
These drawings are gorgeous.
Thanks Steven really appreciate you having a look at my site and leaving a comment 🙂
