Notes on drawing projects undertaken during this period:

In 2015 Coutts set out to draw 100 trees. "These Drawwings are like portraits of the trees, and at the same time, like a diary; Each one  embodies a specific time and place that I inhabited with the tree".

Dress Code:
Starting in April 2013 Coutts made a drawing each day inspired by what she was wearing. (this project is ongoing)

Black News/White News:
Each day of 2014 Coutts made an image of the clothes of one person who was in a news story of the day. She worked in watercolour on white paper, but quickly realized that the white ground, chosen for its practicality, was far from neutral. So She made a second series, running from June 2015 – June 2016, on black paper. (4 shown below)

Visage non retouché:
In December 2015, while on a residency in Paris, Coutts set out to draw a face from the internet each day. "I selected my images with a daily search for ‘Visage non retouché’, in an attempt to find faces that hadn’t been highly processed by the media".
