An Aesthete’s Guide to Portraiture

December 13, 2010

The foundation of my work lies in a continuing preoccupation with drawing and painting faces & figures. The process of Drawing & Painting the human form represents a constantly fascinating and amazingly experienced challenge to me.

Specific challenges are, achieving accurate proportion, good line quality/tonal build up & texture, and also colour. As a by product of these obsessive qualities theme’s of beauty, fluidity, emotion, movement & life are hopefully generated.

India Ink (watered down and neat) with various sized hogs hair brushes and sharpened bamboo provide an unlimited tool box for line, tone & texture.

Black Ink is an awsome media for generating pure mood and emotion.
