Creative Drawing

Week 5 at Art School - p.2

Yay! Another drawing day!!! I've been really enjoying the creative drawing classes we've been doing - and we had another one today. We started with just some simple mark making studies. We masked off squares on our big sheet of paper, then drew with a kebab-skewers dipped in Quink (watersoluble ink). Each box was the study of a letter, number or shape (the slightly grainy effect is where I've first drawn in with a candle stick to make the ink resist the surface).

In the afternoon the tutor came in with bleach, melted wax (and an iron), tracing paper, tissue paper, bits of fabric, needle and tread, and pins, and left us to experiment ... I loved it! Here are some of my results:
