The work yesterday made some movement and broke away from the original scheme. What was an observational note about shopping now moves much deeper into the way we present ourselves and observe and how we are in turn observed. This watercolour is another development piece to feel my way forwards, not being confined, not tolerating the unwanted, trying things and then some more. It is noticeable how much white gouache remodels the centre section. This is a work for me, a working diagram for the journey.
This drawing is much larger, about a metre wide, and at this point is charcoal and Indian ink on a primed board. much has changed, much abandoned and in general an improvement.
