1st entry for Sept 14, 2013

Just a reminder - it's Nuit Blanche tonight - the annual all-you-can -eat buffet of contemporary art work and culture. Go out if you can, and discover some cool stuff, and remember - this is a peak of a year-round iceberg, if you do a bit of digging into local contemporary art.

On the Saturday morning Susan was over at the Sackville drawing session. Thse are two 5-minute studies above, and three 10-minute ones below, all Pentel brush pen on 18 x 24" sheets of cartridge paper (the lowest one is on Canson Mixed Media paper.
In the 3rd one down I had a notion of lines emanating from points of intersection, so there is a pencil undersketch to guide where the pen lines began. The idea intrigues, but at this scale I'm not sure that a brushpen is the tool for this particular exploration, as it is so hard to be subtle or trail off with it. Which does make that a good challenge for that reason.
