image 158 – 25 June 2017 – Tomato plants

I’m really pleased with this little sketch, which I think manages to capture the spindly dancing quality of young tomato plants. I was doing something quite specific when drawing this which was to try and draw with a wider focus than I usually do, moving back and forth over the page as soon as I became aware of an answering line, as it were, rather than concentrating on accurately describing a small area, a bit at a time. I think the lines have a greater sense of rhythm than I sometimes manage.
