After Goya

750 x 500mm -2000

This drawing is part of a series in which I approached drawing not as artist ‘captain’ but as artist ‘passenger’. I gave control of the drawing to the drawing. As the drawing developed I responded to the drawing as best I could. Other works done this way include ‘Farook’, ‘Kool Kat’, Goodbad’, ‘Greenface’ and “Red Ridinghood’.

I called this drawing ‘After  Goya’ see image below ‘Saturn Devouring his child’. When I finished this drawing it reminded me of Goya’s famous painting

After creating this series I then worked on drawing in the same ‘responsive’ way in a more abstract way. See ‘Face of God 1 & 2′, Blue/white’
