Here are two sketchbook pages I thought you might find interesting. The watercolour one is from 2003 and the ink one is from yesterday. This scene of the Topsham hulks down in Devon near where I grew up is one I love. I draw it over and over again because drawing is how I understand the world and there is something curious and mysterious to me about this spot. I’m sure you all have places that somehow just delight your imagination. Anyway, the main reason I put it up is to show the different way I’m working now. I don’t really know how I feel about the two images. I think the watercolour conveys the mysteriousness of the landscape much better but I have to be truthful and say I can barely look at a watercolour palette these days without coming out in a rash. I think I over did it but who knows, I may come back to it.
