Drawing In Darkness

Subject and content-nicely creepy…

22 vampyr

Husb and I went to Taliesin Arts Centre this evening to see a version of Dreyer’s 1932 silent film, Vampyr accompanied by live musicians. It was fantastic. I had a bash at drawing in the dark, using a complete set of sepia Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens in sizes S, F, M and B and drawing into my A5 clothbound sketchbook. It was a challenge to draw dark subject matter in the dark. I could hardly see what I was doing so I hastily sketched in the light bits when there was a bit of light from the cinema screen and spent most of the time making marks to fill in the dark areas with different size pens. The mark making was also influenced by the music and the film which is full of German Expressionist motifs.
