I made Mars Sonata last year but now I realize I have never posted it so here it goes. Concept and sketch Mars has always fascinated us. It's difficult to explain why but there it is, lonely, deserted, mysterious and most of all, challenging.

Not long thereafter, a large manila envelope arrived, bulging with black and white and colour copies of Winnie Fitch's work from all the different periods of her career. Also enclosed; some photos of Winnie and a letter detailing her career.
