Strangers on the Shore 40 x 80cm.
Coloured pencil on grey Canson Pastel Board.
I made a decision at the beginning of the year to do less, but better work. Although I’m pleased with my results I can’t help myself when a new or different experience comes along such as the recent floods that we’ve had in northern Tasmania.
I have this urge to do a ‘flood’ drawing but at this stage I’m not sure what I want to do. I am doing a lot of research and cropping some of the flood photos I took last Saturday. We’ll see what comes out of this! Whatever it is, I know that I must be patient. As long as the urge remains ‘fresh’, I should be able to start a new drawing before the end of the week.
Today’s image is all but complete. I will no doubt find something to touch up before it is framed. It’s destined for an exhibition in Hobart early next year.
