While you've all been stuffing yourselves over the Christmas break, with a possible one man show in the not too distant future, I've been hard at work on this new pencil piece! I plundered yet another reference photograph from the Wet Canvas reference library (what a great resource that is)Next I carried out a bit of jiggery pokery in photoshop, playing with a few ideas until I had a rough idea of what I wanted to produce.
Below is my finished artwork. It's a large piece this one, measuring 24 x 16 inches before mounting and framing. I'm hoping to organise an exhibition locally soon (details TBA) which is going to feature predominantly pencil work and this should make a nice centrepiece for the show.
