The stone bridge

Pigment ink sketch. 150mm x 210mm. 0.05, 0.1, 0.3, 0.8. Uni. This drawing had started life as a throwaway piece and also of an oriental bridge. As it progressed, I decided it had potential and I re-worked it into one of the themes that I had been working on for some years now, being a more European bridge and wilderness. This drawing was left unfinished for a few months and I did a few finishing touches and finished it last night.

Could this do with some refinement? Certainly but I wanted to avoid the cardinal sin of overdrawing, thus I ended it at that point.


  1. I just love your drawings. The scenes you choose are so beautiful and evocative that they take me away from where I am.

  2. Thank you Carla. I endeavour to create a sense of place, a place that I could envision myself in.
