I’m not happy with the feel of the black paper, but I want this drawing to be somewhat subdued, and that eliminates the white and soft pastel shades that I have with me.
This drawing is basically an experiment as I want to create a much larger work next year when I return home to Tasmania.
I want to have a coloured ‘insert’ as part of the drawing, as I have a particular idea that I want to pursue and this is an opportunity albeit on a smaller scale, to see if it has merit.
I have used one of the rockfaces from my visit to Chillagoe as the subject. This is not a serious artwork, and I hope it’s fun to do. All the detail has been blocked in using a light grey pencil. You will note the ‘inner frame’, that will see a different palette of colours from those (cool greys) on the outside.
I shall give more details as the drawing progresses.
Friday: An update on my latest drawing.
