Memory And Imagination

5 Apr

Working on Fabriano paper with my home-made walnut ink, I’m drawing expressively from my experiences trekking up local mountains to draw Neolithic and Bronze Age stones. The ink flows like liquid silk, holding the brush strokes when undiluted and moving freely across the paper when thinned out with water to make a variety of washes. I’m laying down shapes and textures across several sheets of paper and then I’ll decide how to work into them, whether I’ll go back to my original drawings for inspiration or keep on drawing expressively without any references except my memory and imagination.
