Water, water everywhere









Water is one of my favourite themes and appeared in my work on several occasions during the year. The photo on the left is of one of a series of drawings that featured the Liffey Valley, while the example on the right is of a Spring flood on the North Esk River. I particularly enjoy drawing moving, tumbling, surging water. There is a lot of energy in this this subject matter. Rock pools are also favourites of mine. Here there is stillness, calm and serenity, as shown in the third example of a backwater at the Cataract Gorge, Launceston. There’s nothing like contrast in one’s work!

    ok, so this backwater at the Cataract Gorge would have to be my all time favourite drawing of yours that I have seen on your blog. Would love to see it for real one day. But you are right, there is something very serene and calming about it.. I think it’s the layers too that got me. I love it that there is this deepness to it that’s different to your rock drawings. I think one connects with art that means something to them and has a similarity to their art in some way… For instance my photography even though it looks nothing like your drawings has layers of textures and I guess thats why I connect with this drawing. I would love to see some rock drawings with water over the top too!!! But I am constantly amazed at all the drawings you are getting out. Whenever I see a pile of rocks now I see Mr K!!!! Ok, enough Bun talk!!!
