New ideas for making drawings

I love this drawing (above) by Aurore de la Morinerie (see previous post), and I played around a little today with a similar approach when making up a few sketches on cloth.  I have rediscovered georgette as a fabulous silk which is also good to draw on - better than crepe de chine or velvet - and I love its lightness and transparency for scarves.

Also I do get a freedom when working on cloth, especially at this time of year when I am about to start displaying my work at the Edinburgh Fringe.  Here are some lighting sketches, which might eventually lead to a different way of making drawings and paintings.
