Breathing in the Mist: Recent River Drawings

The drawing in progress in the featured image is one I made to reflect on the misty day that Gemma Gore and I experienced on our walk at Blashford Lakes, where the air was filled with fine water droplets, reflecting the light and filling the space above the water.

Breathing in the Mist (drawing in progress)

I’ve included some other recent drawings here too. One draws on the connections between my family (me, my husband and our son), the second continues to look at watery human-animal hybrids by combining eel and human bodies (see Mermen, Otters and Bears), and a third looks ahead to an exhibition I’ll be having in the Summer, in which I plan to include some sculptural pieces.

As before (see earlier posts Chalkstream Drawings and Drawing on Water) these drawings use botanical inks that I made in 2022, from plants that grow near my local stretch of the Salisbury Avon.
