New 'scape' drawing, 'The Caretaker.'
Pencil on A3 paper.
It started off as two thumbnail doodles;
neither of which I liked, so I went back to pencil. I like pencil. It's an odd amount of graft for something I'm a bit indifferent about now that it's actually finished.

There's not a lot of life in it, and it's compositionally quite confused. I've done a few of these kinds of image now and not really felt that I've caught what I was aiming at yet.
