Last weeks collaborative drawing.

What fun! Used my left hand a lot here whilst strapped to Sue’s right hand.

Strips of drawings which were then joined, a la Exquisite Corpse.

Then the big finale.

It was very enjoyable.

Have moved on from that, to explore the movement of my left hand. When drawing with Sue in class, I used my left hand to draw. It was strapped to her right hand. Then we swapped.

It was exhausting using my left hand. So I thought I would use the oil stick method and stay with Venus. I drew an outline of Venus and traced her onto a piece of paper first with my right hand and then with my left. After an hour or so I had 6 drawings, 3 right and three left and a relief of the last round.

Quite pleased with these.

First the outline.

I think I prefer the left handed drawings. !! Surprise.

Then the relief. This was disappointing. I need to have an improved technique.

My blind contour response to my videos. I think ‘ole Claude would have filled the page. I am my own woman in this regard and only drew 8 images. An odd number would have been better but I only made 4 videos.

And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow”

Wire drawing. A bit of a failure on a few levels. It cant stand up alone. I didn’t use strong enough wire.

Working on The Washing today both figuratively  and literally.

I divided the paper into vague quadrants and chose 4 washing stills. I depicted each still with 10-12 pens in a gradient of colours working from the top of each quadrant in a clockwise direction.
