Mark works mainly with technical pens directly onto watercolour paper, onto which he applies watercolour wash and accents.
The presented works are sketches and drawings of some of his favourite places, including Venice, York and Yorkshire.
Exhibiting in 2021
Mark trained at Canterbury School of Art and Design and is inseparably an architect and an artist. His favourite medium is drawing pens and watercolour. He loves the immediacy of mark-making and the decisiveness of the pen when committing pen to paper.
Mark says ‘you never forget a place that you have drawn, the concentration required in the process commits the details to memory far better than any photograph and remains with you forever’
This is the first year that Mark Druery has exhibited at York Open Studiosmarkdruery.com
