...with Karen, James, Andrew, Shane, Tom, Angela and a few others.
We've been drawing for about 12 months now,
and love the challenges that life drawing brings.
Recently I've been doing smaller works in my A4 journal,
deliberately keeping them simple line drawings
with the view of taking them home and developing them further.
These journal drawings allow me to explore techniques
that I might use in future large works,
and to play with iconography from my photo albums.
Backdrops from Byron Bay,
Granville and Annecy in France,
Le Defense in Paris...
...but sometimes it's the simplicity of line and colour I love.
I've always enjoyed the decoration of patterns,
and using line to create contoured surfaces.
These smaller works are a chance to push these areas,
then combine them with layers of coloured inks and indian washes.
