The Nearness of You


The Nearness of You. Pencil 180 x 140 mm  

Last night I was watching the X Factor. The cameras had trawled round after James Arthur and filmed him doing a set in Manchester with Labyrinth. James was totally ecstatic about his live performance, and quite rightly so. Nothing beats live music, nothing beats 'being there'.

That is when I realised why live drawing is so important to me. It's the hard copy of live art, of feeling, and for the viewer, the closest to get to 'being there'.
