Above the shared horizon : Mersea Island cloud studies

Another good day with the very wonderful friday group -  drawing in Mersea Island I was drawn to the most changing part of this old landscape, trying to record the clouds as they poured through the sky above. Paradoxical and impossible really, with charcoal - how can a linear media keep up with a subject that no only constantly changes but also has no meaningful edges ? In the end the students said the clouds 'looked like boulders' - which is one of those comments you really need to think about.

So in the end I started looking at the crumbling cliffs - layers of beautiful red and yellow earth with a thin crust of life clinging on the top. I found an interesting artist blog, by Vivien Blackburn,  which is collecting cloud and weather studies. So it's not just me then .. which is a relief.
