The Draughtsman’s Contract: The works of Jocelyn Maughan

Draughtsman's ContractHardback, 100 pages

Genre: The significance of the insignificant
Drawings and paintings of everyday life by Jocelyn Maughan

Hardback, 96 pages

Many students and art teachers gained inspiration and information from my first book, The Draughtsman’s Contract.

In this, my second book, I show my continuing delight in drawing and an extraordinary ability to bring “significance to the insignificant”.

My sketchbook always accompanies me; I am uncomfortable without a pencil in my hand. My studio is the train, the public meeting, the work site – anywhere people gather. Some of these sketches were the basis of larger compositions. Initially, however, all were for the pure delight of drawing.

I am not trying to solve political or social issues. My interests are the aesthetic relationships within the work of art and the description of the world around me.
