In Part Two of my series of Videos with Sarah Taylor Silverwood, we go to the top of the New public library and look out on the rooftops of Birmingham and draw the tall buildings in front of us, while discussing ideas and drawing techniques.
Sarah is preparing for a residency in Chicago where she will be drawing really tall buildings. Sarah told me that her fascination with tall buildings comes from brooding images of Superman, Batman and other superheroes, sitting on the roofs of buildings surveying the cities they look after. Are they Guardian angels or voyeurs?!!
In this video Sarah explains how she uses tracing paper to build layers and add depth to her drawings.
I’d like to congratulate Sarah on becoming a board member of DACS today, It’s the artists’ rights and collection agency organisation in the UK – as I said in there last video – making waves! Find out more about Sarah here: http://www.sarahsilverwood.com
