The top image is of a drawing titled, “Sunset, Anniversary Bay (NW Coast)”, I did for the 1993 Royal Hobart Show that gained second place in the Drawing Section. The image below, “Morning Glow, Sunny Braes, Ringarooma”, also gained second place in the same section of the Show’s 1996 Art Awards.
Both drawings were created using Polychromos pencils on the gold printmaking paper that I spoke about last year. This paper always gave off a pleasant golden glow as I applied the pencil colours in single strokes, leaving gaps that enabled to paper’s surface to play a role in determining the composition’s overall feel. I still have some of that particular paper left not only in gold, but ochre brown and a light green colour.
Now it’s back to my studio clean-up. I shall divide my time between sorting and continuing with the drawing pictured in yesterday’s post.
