I did a solo trip to Cockatoo Island on Saturday. Staying with my son Ben and his wife Phoebe at Neutral Bay the wharf is not too far away. I was on a mission having immersed myself in a new book on drawing. New method, new thinking, love it.
So the plan was to be nonstop drawing … from the time I got on the first ferry till arrival back at Neutral Bay.
Materials were kept simple … one 5B .7mm Avery fat tech pencil on Moleskin with sort of yellowing pages … not sure what they call it.
After completing a little session at the Slipway area (North West) I went up to the top level, sat on an old stone wall and proceed to strip off layer after layer of clothing as the weather was clear and warm … and sketched some more:
You’ll notice some heavier lines … this is all part of the method, the envelope.
More on that tomorrow
