Last week I watched quite a bit of the Winter Olympics. I decided to record some of it, partly because my favorite events were on past my bedtime, and partly so that I could try to sketch them. I ended up getting the flu, so I didn't do as much sketching as I had planned, but I did manage to get these in by DVRing and pausing the action.
So it's still cold, and I'm getting over a cold, and can't go anywhere to sketch snow scenes because I can't get my car out of the driveway. Instead, I thought I would have a play day. I decided to try a line drawing over one of my gelli prints, but I saw several papers that I used to wipe my brayer and stamps on, and thought that the drawing would work on these. I'm also experimenting with a brush pen to make darker, thicker lines, and when to use them. In hindsight, I could have used a few more thick lines in the flower on the right. All in all, this was fun and I may do some more of them today.
I was watching a Gerald Brommer video called "From Line and Shape to Complex Surfaces", and was inspired to use one of my NY barn photos for this drawing. I will be adding some color "shapes not related to line" later.
