Millook Flood


Millook Flood – Graphite on paper

Millook Flood captures a moment during the incoming tide one evening at Millook Haven, North Cornwall. This piece marks my return to serious drawing after two decades focused professionally elsewhere. It establishes the techniques I developed further for the Sticks and Shattered Wood series.

One of the greatest challenges in high realism drawing is maintaining a sense of movement. Here the tide pushes forward, splashing between the rocks and flooding into contained spaces beyond, then draining back to its source. The contrast of the solid, permanent, stationary rocks contrasts with the never ceasing water.
