This is the 7th drawing and it’s the third of the large set (120 x 80 cm) of five that I have planned. Titled, Mountain, it will be followed by River and Lake.
These works are a difficult task not only because of their size, but also due to their detail. I only expect to finish the current abstract as I will be leaving for Cairns in March.
But why start such a large artwork at this time of the year? I ‘have’ to start now while the idea is ‘fresh’ in my mind, and recorded in my visual diary. I know my timing is not good, but I don’t want to lose this idea because I decided to put it off until my return in April 2012. Artwork won’t wait!
I may even continue this theme while I’m in Cairns, who knows? I expect though that I will have more than enough new experiences to deal with and that I’m unlikely to.
Although today’s featured drawing is in its infancy, one can see the link to its title. The red (Salamanca) line is very evident, but this time its playing a different role.
I will explain this drawing in greater detail in future posts.
