Switching back to a horizontal group of drawings.

I love drawing with graphite. I love all the grades of softness that I can use to make marks based on pressure. I can use the same amount of pressure and use a different grade and get a completely different line. I can choose a hardness that no matter what I do I get the same line. It's a whole different set of tools.

These drawings are intended to have the graphite color space. I created a number of tools that would act the same for a series of drawings. This is the first. Now to see what happens.


Soundings — a new series of drawings.

This is one of a new series of drawings called soundings.

The individual drawings do not have names yet — I'm still spending time with them discovering their true identity. They are on luscious Rives BFK White 22 x 30. The blue field is 6.5 x 14 matte. I've used different grades of graphite for the grids and the dots are white drafting ink. I'll be showing several in April, details to come.


studio update : March

Showing my work.

I've been thinking quite a bit lately about being more focused on showing some of my work. That means making sure I have images to post on my website. This isn't difficult for my smaller drawings I scan them and that is the best solution.
