#Drawing – Tuesday 17th May 1977


I have been trying to draw all my life – the same problems keep reappearing.

Drawing from life is perhaps something every artist must do, it is not easy and very frustrating requiring lots of concentration –  but you have to have a go. I was 19 when I did the drawing above on St. Martins in the Scilly Isles. Going back to the basic skills of drawing is an interesting excursion – a journey I’m not sure I will ever complete.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
