Turns out that working with Charcoal on large pieces of paper makes a lot of mess, which can be frowned upon when living with others.
So, my experiments didn’t last long but it was still good get my hand moving again and once I have a studio space set up again, I will continue my experimental mark making. In the meantime I have been getting out for walks in the Lake District and Northumberland.
I have included just a few sketches here. I mainly fell back to take photos as I explored new areas which was a lot quicker as I walked and gawped at things but didn’t help my practice that much. Plus my cameras pretty naff so the photos never do it justice.
Still I have managed a few blobby paintings as my first shaky steps back into things.
