Drawing for forgetting 3

I love using oil pastels, something about the elemental physicality of scratching away with a lump of pure colour that, fantasising a little, connects with our ancestors drawing on the walls of their caves.

Drawing for forgetting 3, Oil pastel on cardboard [80cm x 48cm]

Drawn during a pretty grim period though. As you may guess from the title, the express purpose of these works was to act as a means of escape. Here´s another one [LINK]
The cardboard used was a box containing cans of beer so you can imagine I wasn´t only using the drawing for forgetting.
