Emblem 141

Information and materials

I used watercolour and three dry brushes – 14, 10, and 8 (pony hair). My original ideas and earliest attempts, used the shape and name of rivers important to me – the Severn, the Suir, the Tawe, the Thames – but simpler is usually the better – so it all came down to this. The line is from a long poem called ‘The Source’.
