Nine Marine Minutes

The countdown is on to the end of term.  Consequently the count-down is also on for submission of final art piece to The Void - the exhibition area in the basement of Tech - for marking.
I have been drawing for about 12 hours every day since last Monday.  My hand is sore.  Actually, my whole arm is sore, including the shoulder.  

Here is a page from my book.  As you can see, it has an assortment of drawings from our field trip to Wellington.  I am working on an A3 sheet of 300 gsm archival paper.  I've chosen it because it's deliciously heavy so I don't need to stretch it.  But the surface is quite rough so it's been tricky to get some of the fine detail, however when I lay my graphite stick on its side, it makes a useful beginning surface for stones or concrete.

  1. Kathrine I think your work is fantastic! 12 hours each day - certainly though natural talent is important however, dedication and determination score very high when it comes to creation. :) I think my favorites are the two in the center (to the right) of the page.
    Wonderful work Kathrine! I love seeing it and hope you will post plenty more. Thank you for sharing this!
