‘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.

Colour in the right places

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.

train station sketches

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.
