Last weekend I set out to capture the lowering evening light filtering through the trees in Siden Hill Woods. These are the finished pieces photographed on site before fixing.
Initially I attempted just to capture the tones, using white, black and sanguine on mauve grey paper. The patches of sunshine on the forest floor were spattered by moving shadows adding additional tone to the piece. This first initial drawing has pleasingly broken lines and shapes lost when I overlaid it with the coloured crayon.
Fixing with spray adhesive unfortunately darkened the picture and sucked the life out of it.
My only other sketch from last week was of my son, playing on my phone after swimming, in blue and black fountain pen and water.
