Monday Meanderings

It’s Monday. A bright sunshiny early spring morning, but with plenty of dove-grey clouds floating in the sky.

I’ve been working on this drawing and ‘cartouche’ idea and I realise that I need to consider the idea of proportion. Either the focal point piece of ephemera needs to be bigger, or the background piece of paper and drawing smaller. Still, you have to try things to learn from them, eh?

This kind of drawing really harks back to past work I’ve done. Thicker lines, clunkier details, very little white space. It feels crowded, overwhelming with detail and pattern. I think that describes how I’ve been feeling too lately, and it’s reflected in my artwork.

What I do with this drawing now is uncertain. It may just sit in the archives, digital and physical, an example of a lesson to be learned.
