Today’s drawing, “Run 1.11.13”
“Swim 1.10.13” The day’s drawing done while thinking of my swim two mornings ago.
Today’s drawing in gouache, watercolor, ink, pencil, and metalpoint.
Today’s post run drawing. This one measures 15cm x 10.5cm (just like yesterday’s swimming drawing).
Today’s drawing of my run. I think it’s getting closer to what I’m looking for than yesterday’s drawing, but I’m not sure about how the various elements relate to each other. It does help that this run was a loop; the previous run was point to point, and I think that’s part of what made yesterday’s drawing awkward.
While I don’t think this piece is really successful, it’s the first time I’ve been able to put together a lot of things I’ve wanted to deal with. I’ve wanted to integrate cycling and running into my work for years, but didn’t know how. In this piece, I’m using as reference the GPS metrics from a run, the map of the route, and a grid. The scale of the piece doesn’t feel quite right; the elements feel dwarfed by its size. After next run, I’ll try this again on a smaller surface.
