Woodland walk 1 ( http://www.hendersonsmith.co.uk/woodland_walk_1.html ) is a first. It’s the first charcoal drawing to be made in the Lanherne Studio. This came from exploring part of the woodland down the valley from my new home. It was the late sunshine glancing through the trees on a short winter day that set me off here. The starkness of tonal contrasts and the pleasure of mark-making in charcoal were my allies and I have a feeling that more charcoal tree drawings will follow.
