A link to ink!
Great to see 'The Artist' magazine showing my work again - this time with a focus on the versatility of ink!
Within the article I describe my mixed media methods using ink to create a great painted foundation on which to build a painting, especially with black and white work, drawing and so on, as well as showing just how great different types of inks are for studio and outdoor painting and sketching too!
Out from the archives came a very detailed drawing I did with pen and ink many moons ago as a student at Leeds college of Art and design featured in the article as a 'simple black and white line drawing' of 'Time Ball Buildings in Leeds' owned by Dyson Jewellers - a beautiful Victorian building in the centre of city and yes, every detail, every line was painted outdoors and on the spot!
Other featured paintings in the article include landscape drawings and paintings from iconic views in the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales.
The April edition of 'The Artist' featuring this article is out now and available to buy from leading newsagents.
