New Stonehenge drawings.
These are new drawings I completed recently in Japanese calligraphy ink on watercolour paper. They all measure about 9" x 6" on 230gm Clester watercolour CP paper; one of the English made papers that Holbein sell in Japan. I worked from old sketches I made of Stonehenge in 2002 from my own photographs as well as a few old postcards. I was conscious of breaking down the form through loose linework to the point of abstraction; creating a new image of postive/negative space and vigorous line.
