Giclee prints are available from the art store! Which one is the original drawing? The quality is quite astounding! I need to be careful that I don't send the original! kxx
Been quite busy lately... here is a work I wanted to do, my cousin Lee and her two sons Ned and Joseph, take an few years ago on the ferry home after a long tiring day....I felt this captured love, fatigue and time....a hard one also because of the immense detail and contrasts/ values/ lighting of the piece.
'Rest On The Ferry' - Faber Castell Polychromos, Prismacolors, 36cm x 24cm, Fabriano Artistico 300gsm paper, 30 hours, own reference. 100% pencil.
And here is a new drawing! 'Happy- Portrait of Daya', 36cm x 22cm, Stonehenge 245gsm paper, Faber Castell Polychromos and Prismacolors, Gouache highlights, 19.5 hours, clients reference. This has come through a beautiful friend that I went to school with Canada when I was nine years old. We lost touch after many years of being penpals. Wendy saw a Karina's Fine Art add on facebook, and sent a message immediately wondering if it was her friend from Australia. Sadly, I only discovered the 'others' box a few months ago, and there was a message from her! Incredibly amazing. We have been writing again ever since! This is her daughter Daya- she is 10 and absolutely beautiful, just like her mother Wendy!
From her mum- "Daya means compassion. She is a girl who is so dynamic. My nickname for her is daisy or days. A month after this she shaved her head- that's my beautiful Daya!"
Hope I have interpreted her well...it was an honour to do this portrait! kxx
