2nd drawing in progress

I thought I had three images to upload of this drawing in three different stages but I could only find the first and third this morning – obviously in haste I have closed photoshop before saving the image ūüė¶

Never mind below are two stages of the drawing (still in progress) charcoal, white and black gesso and mono print

in progress – first stage

Currently working towards completing a series of large drawings to be exhibited with sculptures at
Roma Regional Gallery.  Having cleared a little space in the studio by packing up the sculptures going to 
Gold Coast International Ceramic Award I could hang the first piece of paper to be worked on.

Size approx.  1.5 metres h x 1.2 metres w Рstage one charcoal, gesso, watercolour and china graph 

What I really want to do is get a few of these up on the wall before attempting to finish – so that they are all playing into each other.

trying to dream a resolution

I have been really struggling with this drawing for the last few days – trying to dream a resolution.
And like many of my drawings it began in a completely different place – and has undergone lots of transitions.
As a mother of twins the toll on the body is immense Рliving change.  It is finally close to being finished (I think).

A good friend suggested this title for another piece – but for me it could be the title for a whole new series.

(pics will be posted soon).  sweet siren song is mixed media on arches hot press 320lb.  120 x 100 cm

make over

My favourite pastime at the moment appears to be ‘make over’. ¬†I have been working over St. Sebastion’s Wife for a few days now and finally I think the work maybe finished. I have posted the original and the ‘make over’.The new piece has several gel medium prints on silk from photos of my caryatids.

monoprint

untitledI have just starting to play around with mono prints Рthis was done by painting acrylic onto glass and taking a print by placing the paper on top and pressing with my hand.  I have then worked back into the print with charcoal.
