Study with Boughs and Buttress Roots Coming Forward


Study with Boughs and Buttress Roots Coming Forward
57 cm x 76 cm, natural charcoal on acid-free drawing paper.
Date produced: 2005, while living at North Adelaide (2005-2006).

This study is of a view that I found quite challenging and interesting. I was keen to use just natural charcoal, which puts a limit on the level of detail I can go to, and meant that I finished the drawing within about 2 week’s work. I wanted to put considerable development into some parts of the drawing, but I also wanted to leave some areas exactly as they were after the initial session and not overwork the drawing. I feel that the expressions of space and structure are working well. I’m also happy with the tonal structure of the drawing.
