Artist's description:

The presence of standing stones in our environment is one of the most striking examples of art transcending our fleeting lives. The more I see of them the more I feel part of something bigger and deeper than I see on TV or read of in the papers.

Many of the local stones where I live are sedimentary and if you look closely you can see that I have drawn the patterns made by the sediments flaking on top of the drawing in white. Using a restricted palette of 3 Daler-Rowney soft pastels in a pale blue and two greens I am continuing to move away from realism and trying to interpret my feelings of the stone, my experience of it, concentrating on mark-making with the different media.

Materials used:

Carbon, pastels and conte onto distressed Fabriano paper which has been overlaid with gesso, charcoal and a wash of my homemade walnut ink.
