Layers of drawings from over the past year. Simple – curious about focusing on the eyes as inspiration – after Giacometti. ( seems I am still inspired by my visit to the Giacometti show at the Tate Modern )
This includes portraits of myself and portraits from the Kamalapur Railway community I have been drawing ( there are 15 portraits overlayed here. ) I am curious to overlay the entire sketchbook digitally and see how it looks ( there about 100 ink drawings in the book ) watch this space (!)
