Portraits and nudes
April 22nd, 2018
Here’s the little drawing I made for last month’s Art on a Postcard auction for the Hepatitis C Trust. It’s called Angharad Harrop 14, is 10.5cm x 15cm, and refers back to a painting I made of Angharad in Llandudno in 2016. I originally tried, and repeatedly failed, to create the image in watercolour, but when running out of time reverted to a stick of charcoal. Hats off to anyone who can make watercolour do as it’s told.
Returning to an earlier composition was a curious thing to do, particularly as the original painting – at 110cm x 130cm – was substantially bigger, but it was an interesting exercise, and one I may return to in the future.
Very happy that the picture sold.
