“The process of making a painting is very like the evolution of a landscape with layers built up, scratched into, worked on top of, then stripped away, erased, and then built on again, while still revealing traces of the former surface.”

While the studio has been on the move, (to the other side of the garden), I've been taking the time out of it to go back to drawing.

 

Found a good quote from Grayson Perry on the subject -

"Until we can insert a USB into our ear and download our thoughts, drawing remains the best way of getting visual information on to the page."

I've decided to include some of these drawings in the show this year as well as the small paintings which were so popular last time.

Here is a sneaky peek at one of the seascapes.
