Spent the last couple of days sketching, hoping for an idea for an etching which I can use in an upcoming exhibition with The Red House Group, an artists group I am a member of. I actually think I have possibilities for a linoprint print (with a bit more thought), an couple of etchings and some monoprints. It’s amazing how you can start with an image and begin playing with it, trying to keep an essence of the subject but experimenting with lines and marks to suit your own preferences, and end up with images quite different but still somewhat the same. One of the joys of being an artist.
First series (a couple of early drawings missing) of the landscape near Port Pirie, north of Adelaide. The horizontalness of the place intrigued me.
