BM Drawing from the Collections: Power and Presence
Drawing from the Collections at British Museum was on Power and Presence, trying to capture those qualities in this housepost from Papua New Guinea using charcoal. Reminded me of the barkcloth spirit masks but then they're from the same part of the Pacific
After markmaking we filled a sheet with side of charcoal stick then 'carved' into it with rubber and added the major forms.
African gallery looking at the pots . I know I work faster than many so I must remind myself not to keep drawing just to fill in the time while waiting for the next step but stop before ( or maybe start another drawing)
