So I spend six months every year away from my family. It is not easy being 8000 miles away from home, working in a remote and harsh environment.
Finding something to pass the time always helps. I have always enjoyed sketching with pencil, but took to experimenting with charcoal recently. As a new and challenging medium to work with, I also find it very forgiving. Covering or removing errors can be done easily without removing half the paper aswell; or leaving indented furrows where pencil lines used to be.
As I said I am still very much experimenting with the ways it can be used. some of my work I do not particularly like, but it is all playing its part in helping me to develop my methods.
The first piece of work I will share serves as the thumbnail for this blog.
