GALLERY . Drawings

Simon has been working with watercolour in A4 books since 1984. Each book has 500 pages. The majority of the drawings are exploratory, with spontaneity being the key. Others are studies of ideas already in hand. Some drawings stand alone, complete in their own delicacy. The themes are usually figurative, men and women, buildings and objects, on their own or in relation to landscapes or interiors. Abstraction plays a part. The character and nature of the drawings has changed over the years but the intention of this 'out put' has always been to satisfy the need to draw and to generate ideas for oil paintings.
