Finding Bits of Time Ricë Freeman-Zachery, author of "Creative Time and Space," talks to me about finding time to be creative. (Taped October 23, 2009.)
Just before lunch I turned on Facebook and scrolled through the news. I found Katherine Tyrrell who blogs at Making a Mark had put up a link to this video of a scroll drawing by Chrys Allen, winner of the first prize in the inaugural Derwent Art Prize 2013.
It's an incredible drawing and I thought I'd better blog about it so I could always find the link!
Landscape painters fascinate me, with their ability to see the depth in their surroundings. Allen's work, made while taking walks along a particular towpath, is incredible not only for its depth, but for the way in which she has joined and overlapped her experiences to create a scroll drawing that actually functions as a record of that walking.
