Winter Charcoal drawings 2023
When I really need to focus for a show, I set myself a tight set of parameters, I think this is one of the main things an artist can do to make large project seem achievable. In April this year I set such a goal for my second outing of the year at the 'fishslab' gallery in Whitstable. I'd spent the colder months gathering reference material. Bone like trees, swollen rivers, reflected woodland ponds, tangled out of the way places. I felt these spaces leant themselves really well to black and white drawing. Below are some of the pieces from the show. All drawn in charcoal pencil on cartridge paper at 40x50cm.
