Works in progress

I have been drawing a little bit of late, and wanted to share the skritchy-scratch biro ones. They are small-scale and I am so rusty with bone structure, so they look awkward in places too. But, it’s an encouraging start, as I haven’t created any 2D works for years.

The ink layers glide over the top of each other and I find myself focused on reproducing the tonal contrasts that occur in fabric folds and draping. There’s also happy accidents that occur from using a frenetic approach. And I’ve learned that I’ll need to skill myself further in drawing hands and feet…
