DRAWING 

plays a major part in my work.  I draw discreetly  in concerts and rehearsals, using small sketch books and a variety of (quiet) drawing implements - in some venues in the dark.   I allow my pen or pencil to follow the music into which the figures of the musicians are integrated - the music and the musicians are oneThe music dictates the kind of marks I make and the media used. 

Sometimes as I draw  an idea comes into my head about how it might be developed as a drawing or into a painting, the kind of colours etc.  I will later make a broad compositional study with written notes as a starting point - it is important to pin something down or it might be submerged by the next concert.
