The ruins in the depths

The ruins in the depths. Pigment ink sketch. 150mm x 210mm. A tiny photo of a stone building in the newspaper one day was quite evocative, especially the textures which was reminiscent of the old English houses I had seen in villages when I was hiking amidst the Dales then. From this nucleus of an idea, I had located the ruins of a stone cottage within the depths of a dense forest. Then, I prepared a first sketch.

Here the thematic essence is distilled and re-examined. A variation upon the ruins in the woods, a wilder and more overgrown place. A ruined cottage within a forest.
