When pressed for time, drawing in a sketchbook is always so meditative. Here, previous meditations based on the river outside my door, have made their way (wave!) into hair. Seeing as we are all in a flow of matter, this is fitting. I make these with ink and brush. Although very simple there is no room for error, even one drop too much ink will blot the page. I learned this discipline of using ink and brush on a month-long residency in China in 2015. Focus mustn't be lost and in that respect you might expect there to be some tension in the making. These drawings are about overcoming tension and the ego while maintaining simplicity and a confident approach.
