Drawing Workshop

I signed up for a weekend workshop, that promised a lot of experimental drawing with unusual mark making tools. I had hoped to stretch my drawing abilities a bit. Unfortunately I was rather dissapointed and ended up combining collage with pen drawing – which is not so different from what I normally would do in my sketchbook.

Having said this, there was an interesting exercise at the beginning of the workshop.

We had to find 6 different mark making tools/media and a large piece of paper.

Using the different media and without stopping or lifting the tool from the paper, we drew first for 5 minutes with our eyes closed and then 10 minutes with our eyes open and so on until we had used all the tools of our choice.IMG_1381
