Weekly Sketch – Black Hills – 23/06/2013

I haven’t done a weekly sketch in a while; I was busy concentrating on preparation for a photo-etch course I did, which you can read about here.

Here is a minimalist landscape image; wax and ink on Fabriano paper. I was responding to the interaction between the wax and black ink form on the paper; my starting point was an abstract photograph I took. The result isn’t working too well as it would have been better if the wax hadn’t been on the paper where the water shape is at the bottom of the image.
