New Year… New beginnings

New year…. new beginnings
I am back in the studio this week working in my sketchbook.
I want to explore my drawing and mark making this year.
An inspirational quote by John Berger with his honest analysis of “ways of seeing” and creating.

“For the artist drawing is discovery…. each mark you make on the paper is a stepping-stone from which you proceed to the next, until you have crossed your subject as though it were a river.”
John Berger in his essay “The basis of all painting and sculpture is drawing.”

I have been looking closely at a landscape, seeing its history as physical scars on its surface and translating this into colour, textures, pattern and marks creating rhythms.
