These are some recent works as I re-engage with sketching from ‘real life’ – and experimenting with pen, ink, gouache and watercolour wash. These are really bold, and I enjoy the feeling of freedom of drawing straight onto the page with pen. I don’t always ‘like’ the images that result in terms of finding them ‘pretty’ – sometimes they appear strong, wonky, threatening and a little bit yucky. But nevertheless I like them, and find them interesting to make.
