About David Jones

ESSENCE OF BODY
SIMPLICITY OF LINE
BREATH OF LIFE

The human form expressing our different emotions and feelings, expressed simply through a few lines.

After 2 major brain operations 20 years ago an artist friend suggested life drawing to help with memory problems.
I use a technique known as Zen drawing - as each line is drawn one only looks at the subject (the model) and not the paper. The line is drawn on the out breath for best concentration, power and control. I hope that as you look at these line drawings you can 'draw' them again with me. To breathe slower and smoother with each line.

The poses are usually between 1 and 5 minutes(max 10) .Sometimes there is time for more than one completed work of the same pose, as measuring is not required as in 'normal' life drawing.

Permanent artist ink marker pen is used, so no fading or damage possible.

The monogram of my initials is in the form of a whale (childhood name was Jonah)
