Paddy joins in is part of the body of work For the love of drawing, a series on lifedrawing in pencil.
The pencil drawings are all between A3 and A2 in size and completed in certainly no more than 10 minutes per sketch.
Drawing for me is the purest form of art.
How to create depth and movement on a two-dimensional surface through geometrical shapes? How to find flow? How to describe something uniquely but also with the minimum number of marks? How to keep the eye interested?
I love the simple beauty and intimacy of a pencil drawing; the grainy texture, soft and sharp, and with a light sheen, all within one medium. And drawing from life is the best.
