artwork update

I seem to have many new ideas to execute lately and have been extra busy at my studio!

Originally I felt very desirous for using my pastels again; they have been neglected for some time now and quite simply I MISS them!! For me colour always seems the easy option. Vast areas of the piece are covered with ease, and somehow, breaking down 'tones' is so much easier with a range to work with than shades of grey only.

A friend introduced me to three new models and that was the final inspiration! In this blog, I am going to use the unique platform to show a couple of pieces developing in stages as several people have expressed how much they enjoy it; to see the process seems to inspire in a completely different way to simply seeing a finished piece.

So I hope you enjoy! Christmas is around the corner so this might well be the last post for the year! See you in 2018...
