Worcester Music Festival.
Live drawing @ Worcester Arts Workshop.
I carried these two large pre-painted sheets of MDF and an easel to Worcester Arts Workshop, balanced on my head. Feeling strong but incredibly nervous (even though it was my blinking idea!) I set up camp in the sunshine. It took a long time to get in to the flow, My hand felt tight like I was drawing with a much finer pen. It felt really daunting to have a blank canvas in front of me in front of people! As I began to feel defeated I and almost packed it in for the day, I decided to just make shapes with thicker markers and suddenly things started to come together.
Sunday was a much smoother day, I felt I was in the flow having ended the day before on a positive note! I had only the idea in my head that I wanted to draw the crowd and performers, how I was going to do that was decided on the day with the limited materials I’d brought with me.Everyone there was so lush and encouraging. Happy with this first! Looking forward to finishing it.
