Revealed structure

I've been eagerly awaiting the fall of leaves from the trees so that I can once again see the structures and enjoy the stronger, more dynamic shadows.

A recent visit to Westonbirt Arboretum shows that the leaves have fallen and the structures have been revealed.

The interplay of shadows and tree trunks is very inspiring at this time of year, we enjoyed making the most of this clear sunny day. Now I'm itching to get going on new drawings and etchings.

RWA - Pic of the day

"Pic of the day: Rain Washed Sediment by Wendy Rhodes

In her etching ‘Rain Washed Sediment’, Wendy Rhodes has achieved lovely texture and tonal variation and the piece has a beautiful ‘roughness’ There is a gorgeous loose, tactile feel to the work that is entirely the artist’s own ‘style’."

This is the first time that I have seen something that as been written about my work, how really interesting, lovely and very flattering it is. Thank you to whoever has been this generous in their thoughts.
