Yesterday morning I decided that it was time to complete the second in my “mug trilogy” as there is an art prize next month that I am keen to enter.
The first drawing is entered in an art exhibition in Launceston that opens next Thursday night. Today’s featured drawing is titled “Mugscape”. In this drawing I have extended all the marks, scrapes and colours out, beyond the mug itself to become the ground that the mug sits on. At 60 x 64 cm (unframed), it is a fairly large coloured pencil drawing. There is a fair amount of detail to add and the odd touch-up here and there, but I’m aiming to finish it within the next few days.
