I bought myself a drawing tablet which enabled me to draw my images straight to my computer without the need for scanning work drawn on paper.
My work got simpler and more three-dimensional.
Both drawings featured today are a comment on our abuse of our land and man’s attempt to control the landscape.
I’m sure some people find this type of work confronting. When I displayed this series there were many positive comments which surprised me as none were sold. One (not featured today) though gained a judges’ commendation at a major art award a few years ago.
I want to take this work further, but I’m still committed to coloured pencil.
Tomorrow: Gillem Reid
