Finding My Way In The Dark

Trying out this new paper Terra Skin I went to dark, I had laid down a few layers of ink and was drawing into it and when it dried I had to stand at an angle to the piece to see the marks. The camera wasn't to happy either but I was hoping that by playing with the darks and shadows in photoshop I might find what I knew was there.


Really, there is something there,  38, x 24 in, ink on paper, 2014

After playing in photoshop

  1. I love the whole series, the gradual revelation of 'what lies within'. I see it as a triptych.

  2. I'm always drawn to low contrast works --- they have a quiet resonance and mystery that appeals as they allow my imagination free reign...
