This year I produced more drawings than I had intended. I was trying to produce less work that took me more time, was more detailed and sensitive. Well, I am pleased to report that my work became more sensitive and detailed, not that detail really matters, it’s just that it suited the subjects I drew.
As the year progressed the average size of my drawings increased. I did however, produce a series of smaller works. My drawings are thematically based and I usually produce anywhere from 2 – 10 works, often one after the other. I have always liked to work in themes as it gives me the chance to explore an idea more fully than would be the case with a single drawing.
My themes this year were: Rocks, Shells, Bread, An Enamel Mug, Tumbling Water, Logs, Natural and Man-Made Graffiti, Religious Symbolism, Light and Abstracts based on Nature. I have also commenced a series looking at known objects in a completely different way.
Some of my themes have been with me for a number of years. The Enamel Mug is new, and may appear again next year.
Today’s images are examples from some of my Rock studies.
Tomorrow: My goals for next year.
