My latest drawing Mountain, is slowly growing. Last week I was able to grab some quality time, but not as much as I would have like due to a bad case of RSI in both my hands. I haven’t experienced this much pain for a long time and it annoyed me greatly, but I know that I must take some breaks and let my hands ‘settle down’.
I know that my drawing style as well as the amount of time I spend on my work have contributed to my problem. I am taking a large dose of fish oil capsules each day and up until recently they seem to have done their best to keep my hands pain-free.
Anyway, back to today’s drawing. It’s quite obvious that this isn’t an abstract work, more semi-abstract. There are ‘known’ parts and other parts that can be interpreted a number of ways.
As the title implies, this drawing is landscape-based in both content and layout. I want to finish this one before the end of the month, as I intend to concentrate on preparing myself for my trip to Cairns in March.
I will publish an artist’s statement when the drawing is completed.
