I’ve finally found my way back here after a few holiday blogpost-free weeks which honestly I needed to recharge and finish up details on the graphite drawing “Song” and start another which is a nude male torso.

Great New Year wishes to all!

 

The drawing Song is an example of a meticulous study of light and shade and the different levels present and how they are perceived and transferred to paper via in this case graphite pencils. I have used the spectrum of 4H to 8B. In terms of composition, I have chosen to break the initial triangular form I was intending into a more diagonal semi parallel line form. The poem “Song” is from current musings on life and the drawing. Enjoy!

SONG

Dance float till the sounds,

soft aroma emotions,

finding delicate windows,

in slow saviour motions.

Savorer of mirrors,

self indulgent disguise,

absurdity dragging circles,

song free luscious sky.

Hey! you there!

bring me back from despair,

far away from this song,

from this free loving form,

this maker of meaning,

this happenstance cause.

Song,

crash waves on my eyebrows,

sun bursting desire,

wash over this symbol,

shine pleasant conspire,

moist feminine salt,

breeze humid estate,

conspicuous these locks,

liquid

languid

escape.
