Come in Forty Seven ...
Come in No.47 (wax crayon on computer printout, 15 x 21 cms)
During the week, Ian Craig announced an open fun project, the idea being to take a template of drawn black lines and make a composition using those lines. I missed last night's deadline, but have sent it to him anyway and I understand he'll be showing them all in due course.
The number of entries was limited to 47, hence the title, and his stipulation was that the picture should be completed in about 47 minutes, without too much forethought.
I dug out my box of Reeves 8 Assorted Colours Extra Large Non-Smudge Crayons and my box of 24 Guitar Special Artist's Crayons, "especially made for tropical use" (with the price , 24p, still on, which shows how long ago I bought them), and set to. This is the result.
Later: Ian has now posted all 47 images as a video here.
