My Surfaces: Drawing journal ‘Gilding the Lily’

I love doodling with gold and silver ink pens, somehow the drawing just grows and grows, and I get more and more carried away!  This is good in a sense as it is free expression.  It must be said though that it doesn’t do to be too free.  I feel there must always be a raison d’etre: an underlying reason behind what I do and that work like this must be balanced by more disciplined work: more control.  As my work progresses I have come to realise that my concerns reveal a dichotomy: control and automatism.
