It was supposed to rain heavily all day today but it was actually bright, sunny and breezy. I took the opportunity to go to a viewing spot at Easington, the last one before Spurn Point.

It was far too windy to sketch outside so I set myself up in the car. The views were immense, the photo does not give any sense of the vastness of scale of the horizon line and sky. I tried to capture the crisp clarity of the atmosphere through the use of bolder, brighter colours. The drawings emanated as bands of colour in sort of rainbow curve. I love that I don’t have a clear idea of how the drawing will evolve when I start, it just develops in an organic way. I will examine these drawings when I return to the studio and see how they can be developed.

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.
