Drawings

Here are some of my favourite drawings.  Most of these have not been exhibited.  I start with pencil sketches, not here, then move to lovely thick sheets of paer and the nib and ink,  They take ages and lots of patience.  I love the detail involved when working with ink.  And, it is unforgiving so each mark has to be predetermined.  I use a lot of rubber latex to keep some areas clean. I hit on a theme and then I have to work it through - just draw until whatever has motiviated me has worked its way out of my system..  I cannot do other owrk until i go through this process.  This is not just contained to ink drawing , so also with some of my painting themes, which often end up as exhbitions.  Unfortunately the topics tend to be a bit in one's face and not really very peaceful and jolly.
