There are many reasons why I love wood, but right now it's just for the pure pleasure of drawing it. And the fact that I'm using carbonised wood, taped onto dead wood to draw living wood on a surface made of pulped wood - what versatile stuff!
I'm hoping this newest drawing will be ready for my upcoming show 'Damaged woods' which opens on the 5th October. It's an ambitious one, being much bigger than I've attempted before, but I'm optimistic it'll be finished in time - you'll just need to come to art's complex to see if I've managed it.
Preparations are well underway for the Open Glass Doors exhibition on the 29th and 30th September. In the King's Hall, Edinburgh, it will feature a wonderful variety of paintings, drawings, sculptures, jewellery and crafts and all works are for sale. Have a look at the website for all the details and lots of lovely pictures.
