There is a meditative quality to these first few drawings since my technique is intentionally slowed down. The act of drawing is an homage to the wabi sabi of my woods whether with a singular fallen branch or a composition of intertwined vines in situ. I find beauty in the interconnectedness and decay. Recently with the intensity of the news, my lines are more fluid and fast. My process involves free flow painting combined with detailed drawing. The spirit of the watercolor combines with the graphite to capture opposing forces of movement and stillness.
