Howdy Folks!,.. 'Child of Mars' has finally got its final coat of nice glossy satin varnish!.
I loved experimenting with simultaneous warm and cool lighting effects on the model in this piece, and the composition was somewhat inspired by Euan Uglow's symmetrical minimalist figurative paintings..
Geometric repetition with the figure and throughout the composition was used to create harmony and balance, and I strived to create a tactile and exciting piece with the textured surface and by contrasting flat hues with the high realism of the woman's figure..
This piece is now availbe for collection at 'Child of Mars'

Hiya, this shy gal was part t of my drawing practice yesterday (in 2D). I loved the shy, awkward pose of this model and tried to convay this in this minimal gestural piece..
Hi guys! So with a touch of trepidation I got back to this piece and I'm pretty happy it's turned out just as envisioned!.. The nature of this piece I feel lends itself to personal interpretation so I shy away from clarifying my own inspiration as I would like each observer to find meaning in it for themselves, independent of my own conceptual vision.
Hiya guys! After my unavoidable hiatus with rather infrequent drawing practice sessions, I've been taking the opportunity to get back into my daily drawing habit, trying to regain fluidy and skills I feel had gone rather rusty after last year.
Still working on it but meanwhile here is one of my latest figural drawings!
(p.s. Included in Artfinder's 'Best of February' Collection!!)

Hiya folks!,.. It's been a while hasn't it!. I'm coming out of a difficult year after caring for my dad through his last few months and long slow deterioration. There are no words to describe how it feels to see a loved one go thus... We miss him everyday now even though he had long been a shadow of himself.
Anyways, art has always pulled me through difficult times and I was working on this little print during his final days. I did one set with goldleaf for some artist friends (12 editions) and this set (below in only 8 editions) with silverleaf. I hadn't done any printmaking since my college days so I kept it simple.
This is the first time I've tried gilding a handpulled print and it's a bit tricky to do so, as each piece is supposed to be as identical as possible ( this is a mark of a good printmaker). To get the gilding pattern of each print as close as possible I used a stencil to apply the gilding paste and then continued with the gilding process as usual.
I wanted the silverleaf to be protected though, so a layer of Artist Varnish was applied just to the leaf alone.
These prints have only just been made available on Artfinder so if you're interested in adding one to your collection pop on by - 'Zen Dog' Silverleaf V/E Print .
Do drop me a message if you have any questions!
