Mean And Moody...


This is the concertina sketchbook I was working in when I visited The Steel Rooms (which I mentioned in the last post).
What always surprises me is how unexpected the results are when you are mark- making and not completely controlling the outcome.
I felt really jolly, chatting with good friends in a beautiful studio space, but I feel that this does seem rather sombre...
Oooo hidden depths...
Ha!

    1. Thanks Sujata, do you find one day you work in a certain way and then another day it's different! X

  3. Or, perhaps a little Richard Diebenkornish?
    Like a breath of fresh air, will be back to see more!

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
