One drawing leads to another – this one followed on from ‘In Flight’ (see here for images and background). Once again using Liquid Pencil loosely and almost randomly applied as a base, on yupo paper, then the forms are worked into and developed using different kinds of pencils.
One difficulty with this kind of work is photographing it accurately, looking back to ‘In Flight’ it looks quite clumsy, a lot of the fine detail and some delicate elements are just not visible in the photo. I think you can see a little more in this one … the details below may give more sense of it.
At present this one is called ‘Connections’ based on the almost ribbon-like structure linking all the elements, but I was sent a link to videos of birds performing murmurations, where they swoop and turn in an enormous group creating extraordinary patterns in the sky, and I can see elements of that in this, so that may be a new title!
