As part of my upcoming exhibition titled ‘Solace’, I will have 4 digital landscape photographs on exhibit at Signal Arts Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow. It runs from February 27th to March 12th with opening reception March 3rd at 7pm. All are welcome!
Something from the past.. A sketch I did last year from memory. I photographed it using a shallow depth of field f2.8 on my camera lens. Then I uploaded it to my computer and manipulated it with some textured layering on photoshop. The original drawing was a gift to my brother for his civil partnership wedding.
I hadn’t sketched like that in a long time and it was very grounding for me at the time. I have a love for trees, they make me feel protected in a way, they are like piers to me, older and wiser. Monumental survivors..
I love sketching with graphite, it allows a balance of freedom and control which is similar to charcoal. This is a sketch I did for painting in progress. Inspired by the eeie atmosphere of the landscape and woods I had walked a few days ago. I felt a strange empathy with my surroundings.
