Drawings/prints that I don’t hate

Okay I’m not going to take up drawing and/or printmaking pretty much ever again (excepting the Sketchbook Project this year) but here’s a few that I actually kept because I didn’t hate them.

These are a pair of ink drawings. I was fascinated with Victorian portraiture, chemical symbols and repetition at the time (and was for aaaaaaages)

These happy little fellas were practise for other stuff. Ink again. Pretty but boring.

Part of a series of old house interiors.

One of the few lino cuts I ever, ever liked. Photographed smoke patterns from the early days of photograpy.

Print making is so much hard work for an uncertain result, so time consuming and sometimes full of pretty dodgy chemicals. I just didn’t love it like I love painting, and by 2nd year of Uni, drawing was becoming a chore as well.

    I’m so with you about printmaking. I’ve got my last printmaking subject next year with a teacher I find tough and who doesn’t like my work… yay. Great website Vicki… If there was a follow button, I’d follow it!

      Thanks Keryn – I feel your printmaking pain. Sometimes you get a teacher who only likes work that’s in their own remit. It’s difficult. I think you can follow but buggered if I know how to do it. I’ll have to get back to you.

    I love your work, in particular the lino cut, the small work, the self portrait..damn it I love it all. Belatedly, I agree. Sadly, art teachers sometimes miss the pathos of work if it isn’t within their narrow comfort zone. Art, for me is to challenge the mediocrity , the mindless and mundane.xxx
