Trespassing For Art II
Pastel and pencil on paper
51 x 38 x 2.5 cm framed
Trespassing For Art II was drawn of Hevingham woods while seeking some large red fir trees I had seen from the road. The autumn colours were particularly vivid in the light that day and I made some quick sketches and took some photos in order to inform future paintings I had planned. This particular drawing developed when I made a drawing of the woods and wanted a colour study. I had some paper I had painted with vermillion in preparation for some other work but decided to use it for the drawing as the red would be an interesting ground to use. Pastels lent themselves perfectly to the task, allowing me to capture the layers of colours quickly and to show the shapes and distance of the trees lining the pathway.
To access the woods, in order to find the red firs, I had to cross some land owned by a sawmill, hence the title!
