Not so new subject matter

When I draw or paint I keep being pulled back to architectural subject matter. I especially enjoy exploring detail and decoration. It struck me that shops would make an ideal subject.

Out I went into the cold, cold snow (well actually sleet and wind) with my camera. It seemed like cheating but this weather is not fit for drawing outside.

When I started to play I found myself using holiday photos to piece together a fictional building instead. It must be a subconscious yearning for the warmth.

I'm hoping to print some drawings on a risograph machine.  I'm trying out black crayon hoping to get a lithographic feel to the marks.

  1. It intriguing how we are pulled back to things, and then explores them afresh and anew. Your architectural sensitivity is always so lovely to observe - and to see a fictional one appear. Have fun with the next stepson printing - I will be watching with interest!


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
