The image of motorbikes caught my eye immediately. I can almost hear the noise of the engines, and imagine the wind in my face, even though I’ve never ridden a motorbike!
Here begins my 100 days of Sybil Andrews. My intention is to draw digital versions of Sybil’s linocut images for #the100dayproject. Choosing an artist to emulate takes away that friction of thinking what to do every day. By copying Sybil’s style I hope to understand how the compositions work, to get a feel for the energy and flow. Ultimately I want to be able to create my own piece of art in this wonderful style.
Motorbikes, Day 1
I may change the colours soon but for now, I like this combination. I shall have to be strict with myself, and not exchange procrastinating about what to draw for choosing a colour palette!
There is a second benefit to #the100dayproject; I am also learning Adobe Illustrator. I could probably work more quickly in Photoshop, but the reason for this project is no speed. In these times of combating the Sars-CoVid-2 virus, it’s about occupying my time, and my mind.
