While it’s been a while (about seven weeks – who’s counting!) since I picked up a paintbrush, I continue to draw.
These two drawings are from several made over the last week. They feel different to the others – the top one being less worked, more abstract.
The bottom one, well, there’s something about the foreground form and the space it is sitting in. I’m struck by how the form teeters on the edge of the frame. As space recedes, the circular blob on the figure (midway up to the right) pushes forward beyond the picture plane and into the viewers’ space.
While these are not conscious studies for paintings – they give me knowledge of a different (internal) place. I may explore this place further in future works – we’ll see what happens when I next pick up a brush.
