A new pair in my continuing series the long and the short of it. Spring has taken hold of my eye and this yellow pair are getting some well deserved attention. The series as a whole is begining to look garden like with a spring explosion of color.
I've been in a place where yellow art is taking up all the space in my head and my studio. I went through the flat files to see these yesterday. I've wanted to move these drawings forward but haven't found what exactly would help that happen.
I now have them out so I can stare them down a bit.
Spent an amazing day in the studio yesterday working on new drawings. I purchased some new ink a week or two back and finally got to work with it. Sculptor Amy Ralston was making a studio visit and she turned into my assistant, what a luxury.
I set out to make nine new drawings.
This week in the studio I worked on a three panel drawing I've been working on for a few weeks. This is in a new series that I have been making sketches for awhile. In an effort to test the limits of creating larger drawings by making a group of panels that are joined together. This first group of three panels create a very atmospheric space. I'm imagining more.
The entire drawing is made with colored ink and a single bamboo pen.
I've begun a new series of drawings. Again on synthetic paper. It's really the smoothness of the paper that motivates the most recent work. Everything sits on the surface.
