I did this sketch in the autumn in a beautiful B&B in Cambridgeshire when I attended an archive day at the Curwen Press. It was dusk, we'd just arrived and we were having a cup of tea before exploring the village of Linton.
Now I've spent an evening doing the colour version below ...I realise I actually have a fondness for it just as a blackline drawing straight from my sketchbook!

Northumberland and Scotland in the snow over Christmas and New Year. We walked every where and left the car in Northumberland and took the train to Scotland as snow was so deep and the roads so dangerous. I took so many photographs....I hope at some point they'll feed into my work. I was obsessed by the patterns that bits of grass and bare twigs made in the snow...somehow it reminded me of calligraphic marks.

Above is the final artwork for a piece on prana in the January/February issue of the US Yoga Journal. And below some roughs. I'm really missing not being able to keep an eye on US magazines since all the UK branches of Borders closed down last month. Does anyone know of a good stockist of American magazines in London?
