Hosomi Timelapse drawing

This is an experiment.  A small drawing in charcoal and watercolour photographed every twenty minutes or so throughout the process of drawing.
I’ve been reading a little book on Japanese aesthetics by Donald Richie and came across the term  Hosomi – an emotional delicacy, a determination to slight not even the most trivial, to understand the beauty of just anything.
