After the storm, demolition site, bonfire, heaps of clothes, recycle bin.
In my exploratory sketches I drew a bonfire from different angles, at the time trying to think of the kind of brush marks that would be useful. I drew what was high up as well as what I saw at my feet, and noted the objects shapes and where they overlapped.
Finally I listed the words that came to my mind as I drew: rhythm, movement, mesh, translucent, sharp, burnt natural, synthetic, pattern, scattered, rust, grey, powder, dynamic, tangled.
