Here’s my second attempt at a drawing:
I bought a selection of new pens – Artline 70, Artline 700, Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor pen (medium) and a pencil – and eventually settled on the Staedtler as the most appropriate thickness for this drawing.
What I drew: 30 seconds of film either side of the still, run at 25% speed (4 minutes drawing time). The final print size for the still is 28.12 x 50 cm (these proportions are as the camera shot them), printed at 100% saturation.
Summary: I think this second drawing is an improvement in terms of the thickness of the drawn lines and the emotion trapped within the stroke. However the area covered is too consistent – I’d like to see areas saturated – obliterated – in lines & areas that have no marks where the print comes through strongly. The drawing below gives some idea of what this might look like.
I need to use perspex rather than glass – latter is too dangerous. Future drawings need a paper mask on the glass / perspex to prevent lines straying.
