Align One Ink drawing on Moleskine concertina book
Today’s #arteachday post on Twitter was this drawing in Rohrer Antique ink on a Moleskine concertina book. It was something that I have been wanting to do for quite some time and I had put it off for at least three days because making that first mark on a piece of paper, especially quite an expensive one, can be a bit daunting. I don’t know why it should be: I rarely ever make a mistake when I am full up with something. when the piece exists in all but the physical. In any case, my work is about the interplay between control and chaos so it shouldn’t really matter if I do make a mistake – it wouldn’t really be a mistake, just me expressing the chaos element!
Anyway it all worked out really fine and once it was dry and I could “play” with it I found it had been even more successful than I could have hoped. Someone else thought so too as it was snapped up by a collector in the United States within an hour or so of posting it.

I got on well in the studio today and completed this imperial-sized in drawing that I had been wanting to do for weeks but not had the space or time till now. Really pleased with it and hope to finish setting up my photographic lights in the next few days so that i can get some good photos of this and other large works on paper.
Today’s #arteachday post on Twitter today was this little ink drawing on watercolour paper. I have been mounting some stuff today that isn’t going to get framed right now and this might be one worth doing for Dorset Art Weeks.
