I enjoyed drawing yesterday's bunny but today it's something more serious, a life drawing from life. Today was the last one this term, this year in fact! This was a lovely model to draw, I do hope we have her next term too.
I've had quite a week creatively-wise, peaks and troughs but I'm feeling much more positive now and have plans for the new year that will emerge slowly over the next few weeks. I've learnt that when you're developing your own work, it's important to stay true to what you love to do, whether it's collage, or oil paint, or pen and ink, or wahtever your favourite medium is. There are many styles I love to see in other people's work (see side bar for a few favourites!) and have tried my hand at a few but my own work more about how I like to make marks on the paper. I love to see watercolour run into unexpected shapes and textures, I love to see the flow of an ink line, I love to see an image emerge for pencil lines into something that feels 'right'.
What do you love to do when you're making your artwork?
