Now for something a little less serious.. I’m getting more and more interested in the potential of wet drawing media, namely ink and water colour. There changeable, unpredictable characteristics when water is added in the mix have much textural scope. Here are some light hearted experimentation’s. Mostly with a floral theme. Plus two drawings I made on a loverly afternoon in the garden, heaven.
These where drawn from Zinnias in a gardening magazine. A bit twee. The poppies drawn from life are more successful. I’m using the water-colour splashes to represent pollens and seed parachutes floating of the breeze that gives the heady armour of summer on a warm day. Plus I just like making a mess!
