Art Description

Drawing: Graphite, Pencil on Paper.

* Winner of "The Drawing Award" at the Society of Graphic Fine Arts' annual exhibition, DRAW 18, London, October 2018.

The distinctive white cliffs of the far south easter coastline of England are a natural and common subject for artists. It it not only the cliffs themselves that hold fascination, but how their presence affects their environment, particularly the sea that wash along their feet.

My cliff reflections drawings are inspired by that environmental influence, focusing solely on how the land changes the nature of the sea. Shadows within cliff hollows and caves cast reflected shadow lines across the water. Light tones reflect the sky and pale cliffs.

These large drawings aim to retain some of the character and movement of the subject with loose and expressive lines and marks, bringing out the character of the medium and paper.

Like all my work, these are derived from personal experience and relationship with the subject. Each drawing is based on photographic reference taken whilst paddle boarding around the Kent coast and provide little-seen perspectives on these iconic landmarks.
