Water Drawings Back in the Studio

B Drawing

I wanted to work with some of the blind drawings from the Golden to Cashel walk and so have started experimenting with animating drawing techniques – simple stop frame using a repeated shape over and over to cover the surface of the drawing area. As with Maree I want to use this blog as a visual and research diary – adding work as I go along and including links of interest that I come across from different sources.

Here’s my first experiment with animating drawing:

Golden to Cashel Walk

Snapshot 2 (18-11-2013 21-37)









On the second of our exploratory walks along the River Suir – starting in Golden along the river I was struck by the playing of the low winter sunlight on the surface of the water. The near monochromatic qualities of the moving water with flashes of sunlight creating constantly moving abstract shapes and forms. Each one unique. I did some quick blind drawings which I will work on back in the studio.

Here’s a short video:

Green and Blue Futures’ Arts Project

Green and Blue Futures’ Arts Project connecting people along the river through arts

We have started the project by walking the Tipperary 10. A brochure of the walks we picked up at Developing the Socio Economic Potential of Waterway Corridors Conference we attended on the 10th October 2013. This time has allowed us to familiarize ourselves with the geographical, historical and cultural context and to make visual and aural responses.    We have completed walks number 7 Carrick-on-Suir to Kilsheelan and 1 Golden to the Rock of Cashel. The blog will act as a visual diary and mark our individual responses to the River Suir and surrounding landscape in advance of our engagement with communities along the river.
