Street drawing

 

I’ve been making movement drawings in my sketchbook whenever I can for some time. Often I like the results on their own, but I rarely post just these sketches; they often inform other drawings, but I like the raw quality of the sketches.

‘Soup’

I have some new images on my art blog chrisfraserart.com, here are a few of the black and white ones. Some are ink drawings with colour others are pure line studies.

The images below are playing with the notion of life being like a soup from the beginning of life to now, on a microcosmic and macrocosmic level.

Life often feels like a soup. A really thick soup with far too many ingredients that sometimes tastes good and sometimes tastes awful.

Movement drawing studies

Some sketches drawn around Helsinki capturing the movement of people through space. Pencil and brush pen for the quick sketches. Ink and brush working over one of the drawings.

Sketches of people passing through Euston and Waterloo train stations

These are studies made in Euston and Waterloo station. The main concern in these drawings is to capture the movement of people in space and time. There is a figurative apsect to these drawings that I don’t mind and there is also a more diagramatic study. In all these drawings I have tried to keep the line loose and free. Some elements of the background have been sketched in as a framework.
