We wanted to use white as a positive, rather than its usual subservience to black! To start, we explored all sorts of samples of white paints, papers and surfaces etc. Then there were drawings in white of white objects.....either with white chalk on darker paper or scraping/cutting away from a black painted card to reveal the white underneath. And finally, some very restrained use of charcoal following the discussion that white is only really white in relation to other tones or colours, maybe.........
part two of this week's session . . .
This group meets weekly during Autumn and Spring terms for informal but structured sessions to explore drawing.
