Female Art – La Vie En Rose
Female art has largely taken the form of painting until 2012 when I began to work more in graphite. This has continued and this is my largest female art to date whichhas been created in graphite, coloured pencil and pastel.
As this is a large piece, I was able to be quite rubust with pencil strokes and in both applying and removing the graphite. The randomness of the pencil work became quite a theme for this drawing and it was a completely absorbing process which I have carried forward into other drawings.
There is something quite statuesque about the pose here . I have played around before with the idea of the strength of women and I think that this is very evident in this artwork.
The colour was applied on top of the graphite at a later date and brought an entirely new feeling to this figurative artwork.
