A little drawing from last year.
I’ve been testing a bunch of ideas on scraps of watercolour paper over the last week or two, trying to work out what i’ll for my next painting (or drawing, i haven’t made up my mind yet). I’ve got a couple of other little artworks that I’ve been meaning to finish first but then its on to something new! Yay! Anyway here’s some of my little tests.
I thought I’d share an older drawing with you today. I drew this one a few years back – around 2012. This drawing is unusual for me in that I left heaps of white space. Somehow I managed to just add a few details and then put the pens away – whereas normally I’d try and fill in every last space. I was going to say that I’ll try do more of this in the future, but, well… I probably wont. At least I can work on being a little more intentional with my use of empty space.
A couple of weeks ago i had a long weekend so i headed up to my parents bach (that’s Kiwi for beach house). It’s winter over in this part of the world which meant i ended up spending a large chuck of my weekend hiding inside drinking tea & finishing drawings while i listened to sound of the rain and the waves. Sigh. I love the beach in winter. Anyway here’s one of the drawings i managed to finish.
