Red Tree Label

I enjoy working with materials to see their properties. This is a large sketchbook piece based on mock croc skin red paper. Using the paper as the guide I coloured in the tree with paint pens. Exploring pop ups, labels and interactive book qualities I added the label. I love creating pieces you can interact with and change. This study went on to develop into the intricate Papercut collage Red Tree.

Bernadette Sleeping

One hour oil study sketch of Bernie sleeping. Using a low view point, painting from a kneeling position with Bernadette high up lent a new dynamic. As I was kneeling my right foot kept going numb at the same time as Bernadette’s arm, giving a synchronisation to the artist-model breaks.
