Here, for the first time ever, I have worked with a drawing done in-situ’ and used it to create an ‘illustration’. By that I mean a drawing that tells you something about the situation. I think this is a bit of a breakthrough moment for me and it’s soooo exciting!!

Drawing at The Curious Menagerie
Acting on something I’ve learnt on the MA, I arrived at the workshop and immediately began to do a few thumbnails. The idea was to get to know the space a little bit and to consider composition, this is the result: Then concious of time I thought l’d start a bigger, more ambitious drawing.

The observation has to include the moving human figure in natural, everyday environments. That’s not how they choose to frame it, but that is more or less what it boils down to. I think thisContinue reading “Drawing On Location 1”
Roma (Aged 19)
These drawings, studies and sketchbook experiments are just a few of the many that I have in the sketchbook I took to Rome in 1989-90. It is possibly one of my most treasured possessions because, like a diary, it’s a glimpse back to my 19 year old self. I love to see how passionate IContinue reading “Roma (Aged 19)”
Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady
Natural subjects. What’s wrong? They’re not all dead. (Actually I think the juvenile starling might actually be a thrush).
