Having being blessed with the Perseid Meteor Shower in the last couple days, I was sat in my garden and thought I’d get out my flash light and my camera again, I haven’t drawn in a long while and when I do, I pick up from where I left off, back at the beginning. So I thought I’d put my artistic skills into practice and rather than drawing with a pencil, decided to use a flash light instead.
I enjoyed this so much, the anticipation of not knowing where the line was drawn and seeing it after in playback mode just fuelled me into drawing more! Recently, I came up with an idea of a ‘365 day drawing’ project but with pencil, I’ve decided to take this idea and rather than drawing with pencil, but drawing with light in response to Pablo Picasso’s ”draw with light” series.
This outcome of this experiment blew me away, having doubts as to whether it’d work or not and to my surprise – it did!
This technique was inspired by Denis Smith’s photography, creating a ball of light.
