Pencil It In : BALLS – a study.

Class 4: Interior of the Glucksman Gallery, University College Cork. Y axis is all wrong, but at least you can tell what it is. 20 minutes, charcoal, pencil, chalk.
You know what’s difficult? I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you what’s fucking difficult: freehanding straight lines.

The Pencil It In classes are great (and by now, over): the reason for this, aside from the lovely teacher, is that it’s making us draw things that we don’t usually draw, or would overlook completely. Few things are as satisfying as accomplishments made outside one’s comfort zone. That said, I wanted to eat my own hands as punishment for their incompetence.
