Mark-making ideas from Lewis Noble

I really enjoyed the night at Browne when we used different tools and techniques like this to make different marks. I can see how it will make for much more interesting paintings too. Check out some of Lewis’s.

Note to self: Keep playing.


Drawing exercises

I went for a couple of months recently without drawing or painting anything, mainly because I was distracted by work. But I’ve started sketching again, with a little help and inspiration from this book.

Art school

Art classes: week 4

Last Wednesday, we worked with ink and shellac, which is basically beetle poo and meths. 🙂 The idea was to continue to work with line and tone and build a bridge between drawing and painting (by introducing a brush).
