were on a train for a long time yesterday traveling from London to Edinburg.
finished a novel.
tried taking photos of the countryside.
bush, hills, tunnels and bridges flashed by, blocking too often the perfect
shots. Very frustrating.
I sketched, attempting to memorize momentary views, as the train in a flash,
passed them. After viewing the image, I would sketch, embellishing and letting
the lines work through to a point when doing more didn’t seem right.
This is the third and last sculpture I
sketched this morning at the Victoria and Albert Museum. It will be the last
for a while as we leave London tomorrow morning. The sculptor was Lawrence
Macdonald. He completed it in 1850.
12”x 9” fountain pen and chalk on toned grey
I want to say a little, but not too much. I would like the drawings, painting and writing I post on this site to express what needs to be known about me.
I’ve been an architect for years, with drawing (other than for building projects) and painting and writing in the background, wanting more of my attention. A while ago I changed the priorities, spending more time now recording and expressing what I observe and what I am imagining or dreaming about. The drawings, paintings and words I post almost every day. I hope you enjoy my art and the dialogue.
