Ginny Grayson‘s drawings are magnificent. Her line bold, expressive, loose. Her decision making – a most underrated ability when it comes to life drawing – is unparalleled. She knows exactly what to focus on and what to leave out, the negative space as important as the positive. The result is a series of wonderful compositions that give great humanity to her subjects.
Although I’ve only posted up Grayson’s charcoal drawings she also does alot of mixed media work bit it’s as a draftsman that she truly shines. And it’s not only me who thinks so. According to her CV she’s won over 15 prestigious Australian Prizes for her work.
Not much more one can say about these drawings except to say that it’s rare to come across traditional drawing practice in this digital age and I’m always over the moon when I stumble across an artist with a piece of charcoal in their hand.
