Time for a new take on the blot-inspired imagery. I decided, instead of one large piece of work, this time I wanted to do a series, with the intention of linking them into a larger piece. So, eight pieces of paper have been prepared with random blots, once again using Liquid Pencil. The above is the first one completed. I worked to the edges of the paper so that there can be continuity with the next piece, and in a further development from Evolution (see here) I have brought in more colour, which has been suggested by the faint colour that comes with the different toned Liquid Pencil.
To me in this imagery there is a sense of floating, of objects that are sometimes only seen in the air when the sun catches them in a particular way, like the spiders’ webs that can be seen in the early morning or by torchlight at night. They feel impermanent, insubstantial, ephemeral.
All the drawing is done with pencils, the graphite is 2B in a clutch pencil with a 2mm lead which can be sharpened to a needle-point and the colour is Pablo and Luminance pencils made by Caran d’Ache. Very expensive pencils, but with the richest and most permanent colour. The paper is Magnani Corona 300 gsm 25 x 35 cm.
Below are details from the drawing.
