This week I’m trying to get back into drawing mode. You wouldn’t think it would be difficult after my holiday when I drew virtually every day. However I seem to find it very easy to be distracted by daily life.
I started with a challenge, to draw the kinetic sculpture, ‘Angel Wings’, 2008, by the New Zealand artist Phil Price. OK it was a a bit of an ask to draw a sculpture that was moving in the breeze. I had my phablet with me, so I drew in Photoshop Touch. The time I spent watching the sculpture move in dips and unexpected angles around it’s gimbels was quite mesmerising.
The next day also involved drawing movement, thankfully a bit slower. In the mid morning a half moon was sitting behind a foreground of high cloud and airplane contrails. Once again I used the Photoshop Touch program to do myo drawings.
I did a second drawing as the clouds moved and the contrail dipersed.
