Upper Blessington Landscape,

Polychromos pencils on cartridge paper.

Today’s featured during is from the late 80s and is typical of the work I was doing at that time.

I went through a period of producing very ‘free’ work that was quick, even spontaneous at times. If I ever ‘revisit’ that style again, I wonder how will my work look? I must try one day!

One thing for sure is that I will need to use Polychromos pencils as their firmness and sharpness make them ideal for such ‘quicker’ work. Choosing the right paper is important. I found that smooth papers worked best. The pastel board I currently use would not be suitable as there is too much surface ‘tooth’ that would physically distract from the free-flowing lines that this style requires.
