Here's my first creative response to the Lake District. From driving around in the car with the kids, I've got a lot of fleeting moments stored up. Some of those I've been jotting down in my sketchbook. This one was one of those summer storm scenes that so inspired me last summer, a dark sky contrasted by a light field. I was aiming for something more graphic and abstract. I'm having inclinations to work with cloth again but feel I need to keep focused on the collage work.
