Organic handmade charcoal ink studies on mulberry paper
105 paintings, 105 natural subjects, 105 days in lockdown.
"Prior to lockdown I had been struggling with severe anxiety which has had a profound effect on my life. Simple activities such as short walks and everyday tasks were always difficult and rarely completed."
"During lockdown I have been able to embrace the quietness and solitude of the outdoors and able to carry out everyday tasks. This has given me the opportunity to relax and appreciate everything that we have already in the natural world. I decided to illustrate a subject every day that I saw on my daily walk relating to nature. I have been painting with handmade charcoal ink on mulberry paper."
"I started painting on the 23.03.20 when lockdown was announced whilst living in wales up until 07.07.20 when restrictions were lifted."
