I have been doing the last finishing touches on some new drawings and decided I needed to take a step back and see what they will look like as a finished object. But printing out a proof in the size I want would be rather costly, especially since ideally these drawings should be mounted on aluminium and perspex for a high quality long-lasting finish.
Thankfully there is an alternative way to see artwork hung up on walls in various spaces. And here are a few of my favorite recent experiments. I think putting the drawings into a context brings out their strengths and weaknesses and helps understand how one or the other image would fit into a certain space. I don’t know how about you but I think these look amazing and make me want to have that kind of home with those artworks hanging on all the walls!
This little exercise has helped me get a perspective on the work I have done over the past few months; to weed out the images that are just not good enough and decide how much colour is ‘too much’ in any given case.
In my next post I will talk more about the ‘too much colour’ problem and about my drawing process in general.
