Summer, somewhere…

It’s a funny, inconsistent Summer, which has felt busier than usual, for me; filled with a restless feeling of the need for change and clearing out. In this atmosphere of uncertainty and uneliability, I feel sometimes all I can do is stop and just look at things as they are now, without getting distracted along lines of inquiry; just look and draw or paint.

I’m on the last two pages of another sketchbook, ready to start a new one when I take a trip to the Netherlands in a few days’ time.

Here are some recent sketches:

They are in a mix of ink, watercolour, coloured pencil.  I may work on ideas from some of these in due course.  The struggle, as always, is for me to retain the freshness of the sketch and to avoid over-working a more “finished” piece; work in progress, a lifetime’s worth!
