I'm exhibiting prints at The Roseleaf bar in Edinburgh. The exhibition has 16 pieces in total and can be divided into 3 parts.
1- 8: I used photo references of models to develop my skills in observation, drawing and realistic representation. The use of digital pencils, charcoal and chalks give the illusion of being drawn directly on to a sketchbook or canvas.
Plants 9-12: reflect a more experimental, impulsive and less formal process of creation. The focus was on colour, pattern and shape. The result is a more spontaneous and stylised set.
13 - 16: uses a combination of the previous techniques. My style of drawing is much looser with the focus being on shape, line and a freer use of colour.
Together they represent a snapshot of my own development as a visual artist and discovering a process of creating art that I enjoy. Framed prints are on sale at the Roseleaf bar for £50. I have unframed prints available on request.
