Colour and Intrusion

Beginning to explore ideas of self-expression, and gesture in drawing and painting. These are 4 pages of many in an old book I drew in. I was looking at ideas to do with intrusion of the application colour on a surface, of the page itself and how the relationship of colour and lines change the space and how you view it, like the lines have personalities! It has a feeling of rebellion, like a child who shouldn't be scribbling on a page. In that sense the work is related to ideas of children's art and outsider art- an innocence of expression. Also inspired by Abstract Expressionism I saw in New York.. to which I need to research a lot more according to tutors today!

Pencil Drawing, Eindhoven

Recently spent a week in Eindhoven, Holland, visiting my Grandma. Whilst we were there I was inspired by my Grandma, a portrait artist, to do some pencil sketches. We spent all afternoon drawing... I thought I may be a bit rusty but it was so fun. It reminded me how much I like the almost meditive state you get into when doing a technical sketch....
