Drawing at the Royal West of England Academy – again

Another Hatch event at the RWA in conjunction with their major exhibition ‘The Power of the Sea’ A number of us spent time in the drawing studio, just off the main gallery over the May bank holiday week end.  I went along with nothing very specific in mind and joined in a project in need of help. From a video of the wake of a ferry-boat, Frankie Partridge had printed out about 100 stills which she was drawing from onto A1 paper with charcoal. The aim being to lay the drawings out on the floor to re-create the wake. After the first one I was told that one needed to step away from the drawing to see what was really happening – how true!

What an unexpectedly exciting time, joining in someone else’s project.  The drawings  clearly improved as we carried on.

By the end of Monday a splendid wake had taken shape. Really to stop was an interruption.
