Reflecting on my recent sketchbook work

Whilst working with Derwent Graphite XL sticks and experimenting with shape and forms inspired by trees I had a discussion about wanting to see an image within my abstract forms. We talked about Pareidolia and then discussed Graham Sutherland who I had never heard of before. This conversation came about because of my drawings and wanting to find shapes, faces or human figures within my work. It is interesting what we talk about whilst working.
