Bridal Bouquet Commission

A treat to draw beautiful flowers that have huge significance and meaning to someone.  I was lucky enough to be given the bouquet a couple of days after the wedding.  I stopped all other work and focused on drawing the flowers at their best.  The bouquet was made up of blue and white flowers.  I matched the blue to the colour of the flowers and drew upon crisp white paper.

Exploring Lithography

As part of my collaboration with London Creative Network I am creating a series of original prints.  The quality of line created using Lithography printing caught my eye in Paris when viewing prints created by Toulouse-Lautrec.  The rich, velvet, tonal lines that are communicated in each print intrigued me.  It was wonderful to draw upon stone and create a print lithography.  The process is based on the principle that oil and water do not mix.  Special drawing materials with high grease content, similar to materials used for drawing are applied onto a surface which is then chemically altered so that …
