Innocence Lost sketches going to Ottawa

Good news! As a last minute bonus, we were able to arrange for my show of 20 original drawings from “Innocence Lost: A play about Steven Truscott” to go up at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa during their production throughout March.
Since I always like to use new images for a post, I’ll leave you with my final set of sketches of Innocence Lost. These were partially at the dress rehearsal, and partially during a press preview, where selected scenes were run for the benefit of the media.  I was working surreptitiously so as not to distract the journalists, so these were done in near darkness in a little notebook. I’m working with a water based pen, so I was able to go in afterwards and make painterly washes out of my furtive scribblings.
If you are in Ottawa, I hope you’ll stop by and see the sketches – ideally after seeing Beverly Cooper’s emotional and thought provoking play. Innocence Lost is at the National Arts Centre from February 22 to March 16.

amazing work.

if they were not in a sketchbook, i would have been sure, it were etchings.

Murray Dewhurst said...

Really impressive and dynamic sketches! I agree they do have an etching look about them.
