The shapes between branches






Seeing  the sparse drawings that David Nash has made of  the bare bones of cork trees  sent me looking through old watercolour sketches. I've always been interested in the shapes between the branches, the negative spaces, from Majorca  to Malham via Nettlecombe.

"The grey one" has a feeling of Winifred Nicholson about it, somehow; yet when I went to look at her images, there wasn't a particular one that "fit". Perhaps it was "Nicholson meets Ivon Hitchins" - ?

Sorry, that's Ivon HitchEns - I got overexcited at seeing so many of his images at once, and the lovely greys he uses!
