The simple pleasure of drawing with ink and brush is something I return to in my sketchbooks when the burdens of painting weighs heavy. Painting is a messy business so counterbalancing with these simple drawings is akin to climbing into a bed with freshly laundered linen. As mentioned on the 7th July image, the subconscious manifests somehow and I love how this image connected with a friend to spark her wonderfully creative mind. She described who she felt this man was in a character synopsis. It was brilliant and amusing too. This is how one subconscious moment sparked another 'I think he's an amateur long distant runner from the 1950's who works in a bank as his day job. He walked through a worm hole into the 2020's and he's trying to get his head around Bitcoin.' Sarah Jane Bellwood. I'm excited about this.
