Drawing and Painting The Beach Hut Residency
Sharing here much of the things I made during my residency x
Using warm up drawing exercises like continuous line enabled me to 'get going' and I discovered a looseness and satisfying watery feel in the marks.
I gave myself plenty of options with surface, from canvas to loose sheets, sketchbook and concertina and learnt more about my materials in terms of what works for me on a portable level and am increasingly realising a love for mixed media and layering in my drawing - Pencil, Pen, Ink, Watercolour, a little pastel have all had roles to play and I enjoy learning their effects.
I have also really enjoyed indulging by desire to record and document, taking many photographs and note taking, gathering a plethora of information and experience to 'mine' for future work. I haven't shared everything here, there is too much! But please enjoy a scroll through the below images capturing my lovely week.
