Life Drawings using ‘Felt’ lines


Life Drawings using ‘Felt’ lines
37 cm x 49 cm, conté on litho paper.
Date produced: 1988 - 1992, while living at Glenelg (1988-1992).

Drawn directly from observing several poses from a female model, using a special drawing technique. I drew the model by concentrating on drawing the outlines I could see, without looking at the drawing as I drew. I just concentrated on the outlines and felt my way around the shapes and details.

I like the resulting lines. They contain a lot of accuracy, subtlety, and character, and have a refreshing boldness. I also like the spatial interactions resulting from the overlapping of what are effectively many individual drawings (of the parts).
