Sanguine, Debbie and Back to the Future

Debbie Nude - Standing 001

Tis the season to make outlandish resolute statements of good intent only for them not to be fulfilled.  So here goes!   I’m going make a lot more drawings and sketches using Conte sanguine – there I said it and only time will tell if this is as useless as virtually every other New year’s resolution being uttered.

In truth there is something about Conte crayons and pastels that seem to agree with me and I really don’t know I don’t make better use of them.  The Debbie Harry sketch above is a case in  point.  I made this last thing at night in around 10 minutes and whilst it is rough and ready it feels more alive than many of the drawings and sketches I have been making recently.
