All will be revealed ...


Here is the second ink drawing I did of Sudbrooke woods, this one was on handmade A1 size watercolour paper so I had to photograph it and didn't quite get the light right. I took a second photo of the detail underneath

Wow, that's really encouraging, knowing that you are back in the zone again, Steve!

And commissions, even. You go, dude!

Beautiful play between darkness and light, and for me personally, a very touching work of art.

Wow, really beautiful drawings of the woods, really atmospheric, just like my local woods in certain scottish weather! Look forward to seeing some more. Can see them on a gallery wall....?

Fantastic details! This is just out of this world :)

The first looks like a beautiful photograpah, a silouette. hard to imagine it's all ink and pen.

more magic.

Rachel Howard said...

Wow, that one's amazing! Really fairytale storybook territory, I adore the lighting. Tell Nats to lock her doors. ;-)

Rachel said...

Hey, make sure Tessa sees this - she'll probably want one.

I see what you mean about the spreading ink thing - it works so well layered like that.

Donna said...

This serious is so moving. Amazing work.

Krista Meister said...

Wonderful mood and atmosphere!

Rob Carey said...

These are very intriguing and well done.

These are really really beautiful Stephen... just so atmospheric and lovely. i always loved (and was also a bit scared of) Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac when i was little and these have an element of that fairytale magic - lovely!

Dan Hall said...

Absolutely love it!! Remind me to scale Nat's wall while she is in Cuba!! I will be offering to house sit!! Ha ha haaa! Should fit easily in the back of the car! Dan x
