Selection of Drawings

Still Life Drawings

Created in Studio

Soluble wax pastels on paper or black card.
Some of these drawings were made with eyes open and others with eyes closed.

Continuous drawings

Created in Studio

The following drawings were made using a continuous line.
The pencil was not lifted from the paper and I was looking only ate the subject and not at the paper. The resulting drawings all share characteristics which are the result of the process itself.  Areas of space sit bedside and contrast with, dense areas of linear activity.

These drawings form part of a body of work that were developed from a considerable series of drawings made on location in 2014.  Two examples of which are seen below.

The subsequent drawings are examples of drawings made in responses to this unique piece of architecture designed by Frank Gehry.

As this work developed, paintings were produced which explored not only its structure but  also its character as an emotive music venue.
