I was recently going through some old books that I had shipped back from London, when I first moved back to Vancouver in 2007. They had been in storage this entire time and forgotten about on a dusty bookshelf. Included in these books were some old sketchbooks from when I was doing my Masters degree and the couple of years after, when I was living in London. I came across this sketch that I had completely forgotten about. This was the original pencil study I made for my painting “She wanted to do more than just pass”, which I painted in 2006.
I love finding old sketches and drawings…it’s a bit like unearthing a hidden treasure.
