This is how I have been going about making the new paintings. The small drawing is A5. I make lots of these quick drawings at the beach, usually A5 but sometimes A4. It is the quantity of them and the information that they contain en masse that I want. From these drawings I make other schematic drawings in graphite or charcoal, sometimes adding bits of colour. The charcoal and acrylic drawings seek to concentrate the mass of information into single images. Alongside these I am also making larger acrylic pieces on paper looking at the way the drawn information then becomes paint.
