Near Oli’s Gate
pencil and oil marker on acrylic
21 x 30 cm
I made this drawing after the snowfall of 2021 during the third lockdown in UK. I love to walk in the snow taking photos, noting how it makes even familiar landscapes anew; muted, clean, numb and silent. The alleyway is somewhere we walk almost every day and it holds many memories for us. The neighbours gate backs onto the alley and even though they moved on long ago we still name the house theirs.
Drawn on 3mm acrylic sheet using pencil and an oil based marker pen
