“Bone Sketch”.

20131013-165432.jpg
“Bone Sketch” is a mixed media pencil drawing of a sheep bone collected from a field near Capel Ardda in the Conwy Valley in North Wales.By drawing the bone I came to appreciate the beautifull abstract form with its subtle smooth curves and regarded the striking fragment as a piece of sculpture in itself.It took over a week of hard graft to sketch the bone accurately employing a dark pencil background to help project and push out the slender form.This sketch will be the first of a series of drawings to be rendered this Autumn,in the knowledge that I have neglected my drawing practise .I will rectify this by sketching out a series of natural objects such as pebbles ,shells and collected small man made forms.
