Chalk is so rewarding to work with. It makes you go fast and furious and not worry too much about the colours that you use. I really enjoy the impermanence of it... the fact that it is dust. This is a large work. A2 size on black paper. Also, there is something about the 'Madonna' images from Medieval times that has always interested me. I am not sure that this is a particularly successful work. But, as a drawing for fun, I enjoyed it. I would like to do more work at a later date around the 'Madonna' theme. Recently I started a collection of Madonna bits and bobs (figures, tee-shirts etc) and other religious items such as rosary beads. I think it is the spirtual faith, conviction and intensity that was invested in these things that captures my imagination.
