Last Friday I was sent a bunch of flowers from a lovely person after I helped her our with a little something. The colours were gorgeous shades of old, dusky pinks. I used the flowers for a drawing exercise this week - each day a line drawing from them.
In my work life, I am working on a graphic project for what seems like forever... it really needs to come to an end for the sake of my sanity. Following the delicate lines of the flowers and foilage these past few day has really been the light relief that I needed.
I have been doing line drawings for as long as I can remember. I seem to end up in a hypnotized trance entering into the layers of flora. I could happily sit for hours listening to music or a podcast with pen in hand. I really want to get bigger with the line drawings - Im thinking maybe A2 size...
The flowers are coming to the end of their life but I love them at this stage! The lines are a little sharper and the forms are tighter... so maybe I will continue with them for a bit more :)
