Drawing is fundamental to my art practice. It is a ‘way in’ to complex and overwhelming subject matter; a starting point for describing what I see in visual form through mark making, composition, structure and scale. It becomes my handwriting – my signature.

This drawing, from the Goldforsaken Hills series depicts the hills around Sofala and Hill End. There had been no rain for several weeks and the hills were tinder dry. The austere use of pastel and pencil seemed appropriate to describe that scene.
