I do love to draw and at Heather’s workshop we did just that. Using graphite, cold wax, ink, the whole day was one of wonderful mark making! We drew with sticks, graphite and charcoal, with eyes closed and open(!), with our dominant and non dominant hands. One of the biggest things the exercises did for me was to help me get out of my head, relax, and just draw. Most importantly, the exercises got me started down the path of looking at marks on canvas and responding to them. Sounds simple, but I didn’t really do that, until I took this workshop.
I highly recommend this workshop!
You might remember this piece from a few posts ago—yes I am still working on it. And loving the process (doesn’t always happen that way—I am more often than not in a funk about quality, quantity, content and what have you). Anyway, here’s a detail; I went back into it with stencils and thoughts of layering. Certainly seems to be gaining a life of its own, don’t you think?
