A Cruel Streak

Cruel streak sm

This is a pastel drawing approximately A2 in size with montaged images from my own photography and other layered elements. I was experimenting with gestural mark making and discovered a ghost figure appearing over the door. A tutor once related how Leonardo amongst others looked for found images suggested in clouds, flames, even damp patches on plaster. I don’t know if it is true but I like to think it is. Serendipity in the creative process is magical, but only when it is recognised.
