Forgiveness! I was experiencing a creative block so I hadn't updated my website for a week, but I have unclogged my brain and got down to some serious painterly scribbling, and really enjoying it too.
I’ve used my ink and watercolour as normal but I have introduced pastel in the background which I thought looks better than my normal confused approach.
I never thought of using pastel to cover large areas but looking at James Bartholomew’s work recently awakened me to the brilliant creative work produced in pastel.
After wasting a considerable amount of paper and time on producing work inspired by many different artists and expecting to make work similar to them, I got into quite a state and was stressing about where my own talents lie.
I had to push all influence out to be able to start making work I enjoy again, influence is good, obsessing is really bad.
