Another expressive piece combining a mix of media to create a blend of abstract realism. The gestural charcoal drawing of an expectant mother was first fixed from the back with shellac in expressive strokes that would then still be visible in a luminous like effect under the layer of translucent black plaka paint strokes in the front.
The linear accidental effects from the paint caused by the natural puckering of the paper when wet, gives further dimensional layering and interest to the piece..
These are a few gestures from one of my drawing practice sessions I thought would look awesome as a set together. They could either be hung together or separately to create a harmonious cohesiveness to a living space.
Each was created with charcoal pencil on newsprint mounted on Japanese archival rice paper and measure 8.5 x 11.5 Inches each.
The astronomical clock in Prague is the 3rd oldest clock in the world and the oldest running and its intricate design and craftsmanship is really a sight to behold. This watercolour was painted from an image my mum took on a trip there a few years back. I instantly fell in love with the image of this beautiful medieval wonder and knew I had to paint it.
