Fresh off the drawing board
A selection of subjects
Pen & Ink drawing is essentially a simple form of art. I call my work Linescapes because that is all they are. The medium enables me to focus on texture and detail, as distinct from the rainbow-toned nuance of paint. They hold an agelesss quality, much as early monochrome photography and Victorian lithography. I am not a sketcher, my influences have all been meticulous artists, none of whom have I emulated, be they Frederick Griggs, Jack Prout or Alfred Wainwright. Nonetheless, I advance with new hope every time I embark on a subject, knowing that occasionally I hit the mark.
