12th december: on this earth
gouache and burning on salvaged book page
available in the Restless Things shop
notes: i've been getting back into burning things this week. it adds a whole different dimension to some drawings. i have two different tools for the job, one makes holes with quite distinct edges which i used in this piece; the other makes ragged edged holes and is rather more unpredictable in its burn.
this is another older piece which has been many months in the making. i relish the moment when i can suddenly see what a piece needs to bring it all together.
i'm enjoying this more mindful approach to my drawings and looking forward to a new year of work as this one has been just so sporadic.
