Hope Springs Eternal...
graphite & coloured pencil/30x20cm
A little plein air drawing session, on a bright but cold autumn morning, resulted in this representation of a view, from an elevated position in & thus overlooking the woods which have become both the course of the regular constitutional post-punk walks & the source of the drawings that featured during July & August (& are fully intended to be developmentally continued), of the local Hope Mountain.
In warmer weather, this might be just the subject to pursue inspired by the manner of Cézanne’s engagement with his Mont Sainte-Victoire, such, perhaps, is the potential of the motif from the particular site.
