The Artist’s Darkroom



Sketch pad, ruler and ink.

Lines drawn from unique visions in misty memory.

Focus. For hours.

An image lies within the hand. Ready.

Slowly, a shape follows, comes to dim life.

Black and White on the pale canvas.


Paint, brushes, mix the colours in your mind.

The Focus gains motion.

Keep up now!

Colours mixing, brushes moving, something emerging-Oh!

Where there was nothing,

A painting.
