One of the two large early ‘white’ drawings shown in the Arkley retrospective in 2006-7: see also Untitled [A185] (c.1974-76) [W/P].

This example is notable for its complexity of composition and technique, using sprayed lines, wash areas, crayon, pen and added numbers in various monochrome combinations.
