Drawing from Life
A lot of my more imaginative work is drawn directly onto the printing plate with minimal pre-drawing and then evolves as the drawing progresses. Although a very different discipline this way of creating images benefits from my love of drawing from a live model. I've posted some details of life drawings today. These are very quick sketches scratched out in less than a minute, some times much faster. The Dynamic Man is a very old plate that I have recently "re-visited" and enjoyed printing up again and is a sort of hybrid between a life drawing and a worked plate. This is one of the great things about printing ie. that I can still print and sell work made many years ago, if its any good.
