STILL LIFE AND ITEM STUDIES...
It's a category I hope to make more time for in future as it appeals to my persistent leaning towards representational art as my style develops. Hyper-realism is something that fascinates and challenges me, so while I experiment with looser styles in paints, and appreciate more impressionistic approaches...when I'm left to my own devices I find myself trying to capture each little detail, this is especially true when working with graphite and charcoal. My favourite part, as it is in painting, is defining the highlights, whether it's leaving the paper blank in areas, or emphasizing areas afterwards in white ink or paint.
