This is the drawing that began my new focus. I loved creating it. I collected plants from my dog walks and built this composition. The good quality paper had been in my drawer for years, from this drawing I wanted to created 4 more big drawings of the seasons. This began my “studies” to form my new ideas. I just love creating the studies! and haven’t stopped. 

This drawing is of the Wiltshire Downs. Using mixed media on good quality thick paper, I love how the light changes, as the seasons change. I used pen and ink to draw the seed heads and while doing this spilt ink everywhere! I then used acrylic paint, oil and all sorts! This large peice of the Wiltshire Downs in the Autumn light is the work that has inspired my new collection.
