Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.

Adaptation

Brush markers and pencil in Windsor and Newton sketchbook.


rearranged for a photo ... and then 


Brush markers in small Moleskine sketchbook.


I was always a city person, and I could never keep a pot plant alive, hated the darn things. But I'm a changed, and fully adapted humanoid. Now not only do I love living in the countryside, I also can't stop going into – and drawing – the garden. It's village fêtes next, I tremble to think. This morning it rained hard and I drew the cut flowers in the vases around the house... but the drawings look too coy. When the weather cleared up for a while, I went out, everything glistening with drops, the heady smell of wet soil. The small Moleskine sketchbook is fantastic because so light to hold, and I just love the way the brush markers glide over the beautiful vellumy pages.

Cada vez mais bonitas. Mas esse tipo de Moleskine, com aguarela, não serve.

Não - não serve com aguarela de todo.... estou a utilisar estes marcadores pinceis que nunca tinha utilisado e que estou a adorar com o Moleskine...
