Step in stone seems to have infected me with a need to draw rocks. I went to the American South West on a road trip last year which I’ve documented thoroughly both in my blog and a fairly random sketchbook – drawing out of a moving car window, for instance. But at the Grand Canyon, once I had got over the shock of the place (actually I don’t think one ever does), I sat down for an hour or two and attempted to make sense of what I was looking at. Here’s the sketch, which is A4 size.
A4 just didn’t do it for the Grand Canyon so I enlarged it to A1 on the computer, and this is the etching that came from it.
