Miserere

Watercolour pencil on paper, 21 x 14.8 cm each. 2020.

To create these stark, gravelly lines, I worked rapidly with watercolour pencil and then carefully emphasized the internal textures of each line with water and a very fine brush (applying water to the markings greatly increases the intensity of the pigment). The intended result is an emotionally charged form of abstract line drawing, which gains force both from the initial expressive pencilwork and from the meditative, painstaking brushwork used to bring it to life.
