Last week I decided that, even though I hadn't finished cleaning up the studio, I wanted to do some visual work, other than ceramics. I pulled out some chalk pastels and heavy grey paper and began drawing.
As may be apparent from my prints and handmade books over the past year or two (see here, here, and here), I am inspired by my times of "shinrinyoku" (walks in the woods for good health)
and by walks along the seaside where I become obsessed with pebbles at the shore (also see here and here).
I really enjoyed drawing with the chalk pastels as I was able to lay down shapes and colour to effect quite quickly.
