Picture of the Month

This image follows on nicely from the one I showed last month. It is also a "rock face", but of a very different character, and produced under very different circumstances. Back in 2016 a group of colleagues decided that it might be a good idea to submit something for the annual Jerwood Drawing Prize. I entered a set of three images, all produced as a result of a visit to the huge "land art" installation located on the moorland west of Pately Bridge, entitled Cold Stone Cut. Each of my three images can be looked at as a kind of "portrait" of a single stone. The exercise was also valuable as a test of drawing. It is appropriate to show it at this time because I have embarked once again on a series of drawing exercises, although on this occasion my subject is the human face.
