Sketchbook Work – What Lies below?

 “What lies below” was the prompt from the Documented Life Project 2015.
I immediately thought of Hares – though I realise they don’t actually live in burrows (artistic license!) and I thought of the Cup & Ring marked rocks we find in Northumberland.
So many of which must still be UNDER the ground.
 So here is the spread, I cut through to a second painted page – its not as delicate as I would have liked, but then that’s the point of trying out new ideas, its an experiment, it doesn’t always have to work.  
But it’s a great starting point for refinement and further study.
What I did love was my sleeping hare….. I think you’ll be seeing him again.

Inside that pouch should be my 2015 goals….. but I haven’t had time to think about them yet.
That says an awful lot.
