These new drawings are monoprints – a print process which creates one, rather than multiple images. The drawings are of cones, shells and seedpods. I did them at West Dean this week, an observation of the natural world when the weather was too bad to draw outside.
For me, one advantage of still life drawing is the opportunity to focus on how different forms and textures are shown in a drawing. Three of these were drawn with chinagraph pencil, and the jug with flowers with oil pastels. The drawings were done at a workshop taught by Fabia Claris.
