Abstract Drawing with Dayna Cowper
Dayna explained to the members of the Pateley Bridge art club her approach to abstract drawing illustrated with some of her large black and white drawings.
Dayna arranged the ‘Still Life Scape’ in the middle of the room with the members all around. She had set up a chaotic display of furniture, objects and fabrics.
An artist can choose any parts of any of the objects or combination to create an interesting drawing of shapes, angles and tones. Surroundings and innocent bystanders can also be drawn into the picture.
Many members found charcoal useful to create drawings in the short time available, allowing for tea breaks and chats. They were industrious and these are most of the results.
