Adrawingaday number nine: DuckWeek and nature

DuckWeek, a themed week of duck drawings

Felt like doing a short run of themed drawings, and was inspired to try ducks. It seemed like something I could either keep simple, or make complicated as I chose. A project within a project.

Contour drawings, silhouettes, different breeds, rubber duckies, those flying wall ducks and a comic strip – seven days of ducks, and also a warm up picture to begin.



…and some other #drawingaday sketches….

I believed in the month leading up to DuckWeek, I was aimless when deciding on what to draw. But from posting the photos here; it looks like an underlying concept is something like ‘Nature, Plants and Clouds’.



I have no ongoing themed drawing plans, but I am open to suggestions.

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
