Tales from an old sketchbook/2

Tales from an old sketchbook/2 is another page from an early sketchbook. Done in oil pastel and pencil on A4 white medium paper, this is the head of a man seen through memory. The process involves the careful building up of layers of oil in wax then removing and reworking the surface.

Tales from an old sketchbook/1

Tales from an old sketchbook/1 is an A4 oil pastel on paper landscape. I have had quite a clean-up in the house and found some old sketchbooks - this is from 1978. I like the way the edges of the paper have become marked over the years of storage and somehow add to the picture. I will publish images from these old sketchbooks over the coming months.
