Life drawings on white backdrop charkcoal krokier mot vit bakgrund
Well, making a selection that works nice as a slideshow is still but an intention... But here You can find the start - a white backdrop and a homogenous drawingmaterial, charcoal. Special with charcoal is that I can easily and fast work out the fields of the blackest of black to the fairest, finest and subtle nuances of grey. It can be both coarse and smoth. Charcoal on a coarse paper makes shadows grainier and on a smooth, hard paper it smudges out in finer smaller grains. Therefore also the contour of lines and charcoal fields get more or less sharp. About gesture-drawing The swedish word, kroki, stems from french, croquis but the english word, gesture drawing, says more what it means to me - the movement of the hand, a gesture. Exactly when gesture-drawing turns into life drawing is hard to say, maybe two minutes. It is definitely not gesture-drawing when each decision on how to draw the line loses energy and intention. When that something that caught my eye, the movement, the expression, light is lost in details and I start to erase and correct.
