MAKING MISTAKES. 76cm. X 56cm. Soft pastels and Promarkers on W&N watercolour board. In the early days of my interest in patterns, I discovered the power of mistakes, whilst drawing a pattern my mind would wander and inevitably mistakes were made. Without correcting them, I found that they had a power that made the eyes seek out and look for other errors, this gave the pattern movement, the pattern came to life. Over the years I have learnt how to harness this power and now I look forward to the mistakes occurring and I have even been known to deliberately make mistakes just for the hell of it. One of the gifts that an artist has is knowing how to make a picture work with warts and all.
