Drawing: Charcoal, Ink, Acrylic, Pastel and Watercolor on Paper.
A medium scale drawing depicting a standing female figure study in inks, Acrylic and charcoal on 200gms paper.
The ongoing series of figure drawings examines the genres of representation and expression and have been influenced by the work of Bacon, Schiele and the illustrator Ralph Steadman.
The use of fluid mediums such as inks, watercolours and acrylics allows for a certain element of chance within the drawing and are produced quickly using expressive marks and stains, giving them an ‘imperfect’ or vulnerable feel , which in turn gives the work an exciting vitality and energy. Although the drawing is representational and figurative it intend to suggest, rather than depict an accurate observation of the subject.
