Usually at the end of the two weeks of intense work we create big size drawings. During each marathon I set up my own record of the scale of the drawing. This time it was 10 feet by 5 feet — quite impressive for me, but it wasn’t the biggest one in the group, even though it was close to it.
(I’m just wondering how big I can go next time…)
During the last marathon I was thinking a lot about my first one. Unfortunately I destroyed almost all of my old drawings. But I happened to save the last work from September 2012.
It was very challenging. First, I made the transcription on one of the famous images of war by this artist.
After this I had to combine my thinking about Goya, my own studio practice and the set up in the drawing room. I came out with a decent drawing, but Goya wasn’t really there, to put it mildly…
I got the most positive critique for my work for now. Quite happy but not totally satisfied with myself I’m starting the last semester.
There are a lot of things to learn…
