'A Final Species?' - more from the current series I am working on. Some of my other work is developing into very large drawings of plastic tangles (much like what is building in the ocean), but some pieces have stayed little... like these ones.
This is my process for creating a tangle... starting with a pastel colour-wash overlaid with tangles of line using an electric eraser and coloured graphite pencils. This final image I have included in my new 'A Final Species?' series which also incorporates assemblage made from junk found on the sea shore.
