Artist in action, time-lapse video of “Circle” drawing process.

Artist In Action

This time-lapse video is of me drawing “Circle” a 50 inch diameter circle shape. The drawing consists of 4 individual line plots, each with 32 cusps at the center, for a total of 128 revolutions of my drawing wheel. This is strung together from many iPhone time-lapse captures, I’ve added the titles with VideoShop. Not the best video but I’m always asked to do some kind of process video of a large-scale drawing from beginning to end, so here it is.


The finished drawing is 55 x 55 inches, drawn with Faber-Castell Pitt Big Brush india ink artist pen on Fabriano Artistico 100% cotton watercolor paper.
