Sketching for the abstract landscape series Lazarus Rises. The site i am using is the Woodvine’s Reserve Forcett,Tasmania. Many trees are still very blackened by the fires, but the green regrowth is incredibly vibrant,especially when the sun shines. Picking up charcoal to use in pictures,taking frottage [rubbings] from bark and ferns to collage into work, its almost sensory overload. After this second drawing session i got caught up photographing old tin sheets at the homestead,another obsession waiting to be explored further.
Equipment used fishing tackle box to carry drawing materials to the site,moleskine journal with one concertina page[ built in elastic is good to anchor the page in windy conditions] and lumix FX01 camera.
