Drawing From Memory

2013-06-12 20.33.59The drawing task this week was to sketch something from memory, using any materials we wished.  After a false start trying to capture something from the day, I settled on the landscape which is most deeply embedded in my mind’s eye.  And going way back to the beginning of deciding to start to learn to draw when my basic objective was to learn how to work with pastels, I stuck with them, and tried to incorporate as many different types of mark as I could.

The thing about drawing from memory is that once you’ve started it gradually moves further and further away from the picture in your head, or at least that was my experience; and it turns out that’s all right because it is essentially abstract.  I still wish I had better control over the rendering of colour with pastels…..
