I’ll start with the piece I did last, once back home. I was carrying on from my recent experimental drawing, building the surroundings in charcoal, wetting the paper and then erasing firmly to tear the paper into highlights playing on the water. I wanted a different texture for the mating gulls and used ink washes direct on virgin paper.
These were the rapid sketches in the field, trying to capture the movements and posture of the mating birds.
whoo … just caught the rice before it burned.
