The Nature Mystics
“It seems to me that we all look at Nature too much, and live with her
too little…..There is not a single colour hidden away in the chalice of
a flower, or the curve of a shell, to which, by some subtle sympathy with the very soul of things, my nature does not answer….
I have always been one of those ‘pour qui le monde visible existe ‘. Still, I am conscious now that behind all this Beauty, satisfying though it be, there is some Spirit that I desire to become in harmony….
The Mystical in Art, the Mystical in Life, the Mystical in Nature,
this is what I am looking for….”
Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

I drew this piece at the time of the Winter Solstice 2018 on the day of a full moon. For the first part of the drawing I spent two days at Red Rock, Sutton, sitting by the sea. For the third and fourth days of drawing I visited Bull Island Nature Reserve and sat in the grassland dunes.
Drawing at places like this, where two worlds collide - land and sea, I find especially magical. They can be known as 'tween places - spaces where Otherworlds can be encountered.
