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 😦
Never mind below are two stages of the drawing (still in progress) charcoal, white and black gesso and mono print
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 – stage 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.
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 – living 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.
This drawing has just been completed and I have several large head sculptures ready to go into the fire
(pics will be posted soon). sweet siren song is mixed media on arches hot press 320lb. 120 x 100 cm watercolour, gesso, acylic, conte, pastel and charcoal.
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.
I have just starting to play around with mono prints – this 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.
