Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils on Canson pastel board
At last, I have climbed my mountain!
After several weeks of trial, tribulation and sore fingers, I have completed another drawing in my Salamanca series.
This one is a departure from my earlier works in that it introduces a more recognisable element and has therefore become more of a semi-abstract work, than the abstract nature of my earlier pieces.
This change in direction doesn’t worry me, in fact it gave me a refreshing, new perspective on my current theme.
Last weekend while I was in Hobart, I re-visited ‘my red line’ and took a number of photos which I intend to study closely and see if I can see some new possibilities for future works.
So far I have interpreted my Salamanca theme in three ways: 1. Emotional/historical, 2. Purely abstract, 3. Landscape orientated.
The only link is the red line and I feel that this is the one aspect I must keep as it was what I saw first on the footpath at the Hobart waterfront.
