Rural Graphite Studies

Sort by

This interesting collection of drawings comprises rural landscape and tree studies. The drawing style is distinctive, using a range of line, squiggle and zigzag marks to delineate foliage, bark, stone and thatch, which recalls the conventions of topographical artists of the early 18th century. The style is suggestive of technical drawing exercises, the artist experimenting with line and form, and varying mark-making depending on tree type and landscape view.
