For Jamila

I was reminded of this drawing session I did with Audrey Walker recently when I was viewing your blog Jamila. I hope this will make a connection for you too.

The lines initially came from a study of the edges of fabric scraps in the sketchbook pages below, in particular the study of the edge of the right hand piece of frayed linen.



This line was drawn using a number of different media and grounds in this composite piece below.



A few more drawings on damp cartridge paper



… and then on tracing paper which I particularly love and will use again. I could have gone on forever.
