Continuing to push myself, I arrive at sometimes surprising places. Forest is a case in point. One of a new series that may someday emerge, this is drawn from the White Goddess myths, with a smattering of Mythago Wood, but was inspired by The Cure’s ‘A Forest’.
Whilst I have not achieved what I wanted to in doing this work, I am rather drawn to it. The surface has developed well, and there is potential in the linearity of the trees. There is enough ambiguity, and many spaces for the eye to wander. I will return to this theme, but for now am working on another in the Fishing Industry series, which incorporates many of the lessons I learnt working on Forest. I’ll post that one later this week, meanwhile I hope you enjoy this slight diversion, I never could walk just the one path.
