And so the next project begins to unfold. Slowly, slowly. Fold being the operative word here - the rough sketches and collage for the first piece are enormous - over 6 foot long, and so I am constantly trying to fold and move large sheets of paper. The main sheet was sellotaped temporarily to the kitchen wall, so I could see the whole thing.
It's far too big for my kitchen table, sheets of paper and scribbles, concertinaed across the workspace.
The small rough painting is much easier to work with
And here are pages from my sketchbook, cut up and stuck together into another long strip, giving a 360 degree panoramic view of Greyweathers and the skyline behind.
This is how the Stone Circles project begins.
It will be stitched, and patched, and woven. Layer upon layer, age upon age. A project that is about healing, and anchoring, and mapping the bones of this land.
