Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal, Conte, Graphite on Other.

Drawing of Kangaroo No. 55 from the fourth series on the subject, Portrait of Kangaroo. It captures the individual characteristics of these wonderful animals. In this particular drawing, I have depicted a 5-year-old male red kangaroo.

My drawing style is simple but expressive. At a distance, my style gives the impression that it’s highly detailed drawing, yet that is not the case at all. If anything, it’s a fast nervous gesture of energetic lines, washed, patterns, doodles and whatever else happens. Yet, it happens under control.
I like to work on a large scale as this offers the capacity of full-arm movement. I love line in motion. Each line/mark always has a begging point and an endpoint. Some end with a solid hard black aggressive brick wall while others wisp away into infinity like the transient flick of a whisker seen while the animal is eating or curiously sniffing the air. I also love the sterility of large plain white space against the chaos of fast black drawing. I enjoy capturing time in motion.

*Plz be aware that the price of this drawing includes, frame, crate construction, professional packaging and freight from my studio in Australia.
