Female Portrait

This original drawing is in coloured pencil.

I have been looking into coloured pencil as a medium for a while. It is much more involved than many people may realise. I am fascinated by working in this medium.and As I experiment I am already beginning to see improvements in my technique.

This portrait was all about capturing the femininity of a girl who in some ways is quite shy. Yet she is very striking with great cheek bones and an amazing mane of red hair. The drawing is based on a piece a photography where I just managed to capture a certain look from her.

Small Blue Thing is the final painting in my kilt art series “Another Country”.

It has been really interesting hearing feedback on what people have deduced from these oil paintings and I am happy for people to do that.
The title of this artwork was inspired by a song by Suzanne Vega, as it matched some of what is happening in the painting

Today I am
A small blue thing
Like a marble
Or an eye

With my knees against my mouth

I am perfectly round
I am watching you

This painting measures approx 75 x 75 cm without the frame. The artwork is currently framed in a hand painted wooden frame with gold effect trim.

Redhead Woman In Oil

Female study in oil – this is quite unusual for me as I don’t normally produce smaller figurative pieces in oil.

As I started this nude female study which was based on an old drawing which I had lying around in the studio, I had no idea where I was going with it. I intended it to be a loose, experimental artwork. There was no preconceived notions as to how the finished painting might look.

The temptation for me is to overwork a painting. Even a small one. I am trying to become more disciplined in leaving things alone. Or leaving them as they are but it can be very difficult!

I am pleased with this painting. It seemed to flow naturally.There is something about it which is soft, feminine and relaxed.
