Inspired by Nature
The Natural World is also an inspiration to me. Finding ways to portray nature in a new and interesting way, gives me a chance to create as I explore a natural object in a deeper way, building awareness and appreciation.
The process I use involves good quality rag paper or museum mount mat board, a range of graphite pencils from 2h to 9B, and Faber-Castell colored pencils. Each drawing consists of multiple layers of graphite building from the harder to the softer pencils adding value and depth to the image. Usually the colored pencil is added as a layer between graphite layers. The graying of the color gives it a unique hand-colored photo effect which invokes a dream-like experience. Each piece is then matted with 100% Rag museum mount mat board and framed.
