Well after the Marc Bolan drawing, I thought I would give Bob a go.
This drawing gave me no end of problems none of it the actual drawing. First of all I had just finished the line work when I ruined it by trying to clean up some marks with an erasure. I decided it was time to buy better paper and while I was at it go bigger. So this drawing is 13″ x 9″ on 15″ x 11″ paper, giving a 1″ border all round. I finished it today but it is too big to fit in my scanner – oh crickey! This was the best photograph I could get with my little camera. It has lost so much detail and subtlety. The paper is actually white but it looks kind of grey here doesn’t it? Still, it could have been worse – I took some Work In Progress shots earlier in the week and they were unusable. I’ve also noticed the camera seems to distort the drawing somewhat – the edges are not as crisp and straight, curving slightly on every photo I took. I’m guessing my little camera cannot cope with such close-up shots.
Anyway, I hope you like it 🙂
