A room with a view

This should have been a something inspired by Morandi, the given theme of the roving sketchbook in the Cover2Cover initiative (Open Studios2017) currently in my possession. But I have just had a weekend in Lancashire and my visual thoughts are with bare trees and wintry landscapes, not the toned back paintings of pottery. I then thought I could reference Ben Nicholson with a landscape seen through a row of pots, but the view from my window (now just a digital photograph) felt more compelling.

It’s just a sketch – using acrylics and pastels on tinted paper –  but there’s the beginnings of a bigger piece lurking in there. Once Signor Morandi has moved on.
