Sketchbook notes from the drifting spaces

Through Argyll, Barra and South Uist

Summer has been really busy, creative and joyful and we managed to get out the city for a few trips and even caught the best weather too! We went to the Outer Hebrides for the second time this year, this time loading up the bikes with gear, a colourful and motley mix of art and camping stuff. I was focussed on wrecked sites where the semi-organic, man-made shapes and poignant, quiet atmosphere were speaking to me as it were, and I was sketching, making calligraphic and other 2D work, simple sculpture and spending a while with the (digital) camera…. Since returning from all this outdoor work in such a wonderful setting I have been developing these works and I think I will be for quite a while as there are so many creative possibilities and new ideas emerging…
