    These are phenomenal, all, but I was struck by the colouring on the first. I love your abstraction from field sketches using different media then application of colour without sticking to representation, to find the essence of the composition.
    I mentioned an artist to you. Look at You’ll see something alike in his approach I think. But yours have your own originality.

    • I was trying to carry on from the workshop – cutting down the lines and trying underpainting. I also saw how sarah used her sketchbooks for quick ideas, something I rarely do. The black line drawings were that – then I chose one for a lino cut. I’m pleased there is a thread of conscious thought running through my sketchbook/blog now. I have to abstract as there’s limited info in my sketches. I’ve looked at the link – interesting – number of hasty looking birds and lines then a really intense stare from an orange owl! Will look some more later

        Just going back to the link – I’ve looked again. Rather than the blog, look at the drawings by subject I suggest. Landscapes have a lininess. His birds are observed from life. I am not sure they are hasty, but they are both abstracted but carry the essence of the subject.
