In using the medium of ink on paper I became absorbed in the infinite tonal range that the ink washes produce. As in the paintings they are made without under-drawing, leaving little or no option for correction or adjustment. This restriction may have contributed to their compositional openness, lighter tonality and more literal descriptive passages. Perhaps because the medium led me to explore a more tonal approach than I use in the paintings, these images tend to include more recession, drawing the eye down the street, and into the light which is the white of the paper.
