My website entry this year is all about sketchbook work. A traumatic year for humanity in a way we haven’t experienced globally before. Three lockdowns have made me focus on specific subjects.
The first lockdown sketchbook featured sunsets which I thought apt, and here is a scene of a rainy sunset at Cape Cornwall.
The second lockdown sketchbook in November was all about my garden and I sketched and painted a different scene every day.
Pictures from the third lockdown again feature the garden but look at dark and light as a theme to explore.
Pictures from the fourth sketchbook are from from a wonderful museum in Bhopal, India called the Tribal Art Museum. This features life from some of the indigenous tribes and is a glorious display of colour and pattern, religious artefacts, houses and ceremonial art. I have used some of the tribal images and made a personal response to them.
My Portfolio statement gives more details of this work.
