King of The Land
Hi everyone, I am releasing this image to share with you all, it is still in progress and I will upload a final image later on in January. This drawing is going to be the promotional piece for my April 2011 exhibition at the Regional Outback Gallery in Winton Queensland Australia. It is an image of my sister's husband on horse back (only the saddle and horses mane will be drawn) he is sitting on his horse back looking out over his huge farm below. He sits and ponders the future as his eldest son is about to marry and wonders what the future holds. He is quietly confident and proud of his land, titled 'King Of The Land' I really admire my brother in law, he is amazing and what he has achieved is a testament to his inner courage and wonderful partnership with my sister.
This image is quite large created on Arches watercolour smooth paper with 2B charcoal pencil, HB charcoal pencil, graphite pencils; H, HB, 2B 4B 5B 6B 8B using an electric eraser where needed, blending with a q-tip and tissues, it measures 85cm high will be my show piece once it is framed. The pieces I am currently creating are all in the mentored level classroomon drawpj for exclusive viewing but will be released to you all once the exhibition is openned shortly after the middle of March. It is usual practice for artists to keep their works hidden until their art openning night. I am only releasing this piece because it is my promotion piece. Feel free to ask any questions and remember it is still a work in progress so its not a finished artwork yet. Cheers All
