In the summer I go to a local beach called Wiseman’s Bridge where I sit on the rocks and make drawings. Over the years my presence has become a familiar feature for many of the families that own caravans. Their children come and perch on the rocks around to watch me draw and ask me for portraits.

Drawing at Wiseman’s Bridge

I really enjoy their company and participation in the genesis of the drawings

Over several years I have grappled with the proportions and shapes of children’s faces. Their stature and the way they walk too. It is slow rewarding work that has gradually come together.
