The sketch book I made last year is more relevant now in this work. It is only simple imagery from my head, unlike life studies I continue with to keep my hand and eye involved in the world around. The object itself has more presence. The photos are things around the house today I took walking back from the studio. I wish my camera could capture the colour of the trees in the hills right now; orange leaves with kitchen tree structures and a purple forect floor patched about also with litchen light green skeletel trees dotten amongst. must try to use it in paint.
