I am not sure what the method of divination is here but I am sure of the scene: a seance or some form of psychic encounter in progress.
I am also not sure why I drew this picture but I do know where I did it – on the back of a receipt/invoice, from a bookshop. It was sitting on the table, ready to be thrown out, and I grabbed it and drew on it to pass some time.
I guess we can say the spirit moved me to do this. Yes, I know, groan, groan, but do you have any better answer?
Pen, May, 2021.
It is an intense scene!
Thank you. Yes, I was kind of surprised when I finished and took a good look at it. For some reason the seance idea has been in my mind recently (no idea why) and here it appears again.
Love this, so quirky
Thank you. Sometimes I think my sketches are better than things I try hard on. Or at last I strike lucky every so often!
i know what you mean. It feel so free when we sketch, so fluid
Somehow you have managed to capture a whole deal of feeling and attitude.
Thank you. I think sometimes the quicker I work the better the outcome is. I try to remember this and not keep going on with something just because I am liking working! But instead start a new piece. That is how this one came along.
Okay so the title of the piece is as awesome as the piece itself!
I’ve never been to a seance, either. Maybe life still has that in store for me.
I honestly marvel at the fact that you can create such a wonderful drawing without having an idea in your head or even much thinking process at all. You just felt compelled to create and so you did. I am always far too intentional and deliberate in my art – even if it doesn’t look that way on the page. 😀
Sometimes I think that the fact that I don’t have a visual imagination is why I do so much art.
I especially like the hand. (K)
I have been trying to study how people hold their bodies more closely, and making notes.
Every bit of this is fantastic!!
Thank you. Sometimes a quick litle sketch you think you will just throw away turns out to be the best way to go.
