Original ink drawing on Khadi paper 2011, by Chris Gollon )1953 - 2017). Although an accomplished draughtsman, established British artist Chris Gollon did not do many drawings, they are quite rare in his oeuvre. He liked to go straight to canvas to get the images out of his head. He used to paint 6 days a week all his life. However, occasionally, as here in January 2011, he was snowed in and could not get to his studio. This is one of the drawings he did on a snowbound winter's day, perhaps thinking of warmer climes, a beach scene complete with a 'poseur' showing off his torso, typical of Chris Gollon's warm humour and how he always nonetheless gave dignity to all his imagined figures.
