Life drawings of a moving Butoh dancer

Here are some life drawings of a moving Butoh dancer made during a life drawing class at Taidehalli art gallery, Helsinki. Some of these drawings were made while I was moving around the space; in a few of them I moved 360 degrees around the subject.

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.
