Spirit of Our Lord, coloured pencil on pastel board – 40 x 60 cm.

This drawing involved using a lot of black and it was quite tricky keeping this drawing clean during its creation.

I rarely use black for large areas, preferring the darker greys.

This drawing required simplicity and atmosphere. It has given me a deeper appreciation of candles.

    I like this. Your drawing was much more than just a picture of a candle. While viewing the artwork, I was transfered into the reality of the light high above all my musings on the coloring. Thank you for the help to open the door to God- to listen and to HEAR the message of the candlelight

    Spirit of our Lord is hidden deep in us, in our souls, in our bodies, in nature, everywhere…I think that we make a link with him through our creations… Some of us can show this! You, for sure! Thanks Richard!
    Best wishes from a country far away from yours!

  3. Honestly telling, I first thought this was just a photo of a candle edited on Photoshop after the shoot.

    I’m glad that blogosphere made me meet a great artist like you. 🙂

    It appears that you are exploring the notion of religious symbolism, a theme in which i am very enthusiastic towards. My names Serena Riley and I’m currently studying Art Studio Practice at Launceston College. I really enjoy your work as the theme has a direct collation with the art work I am currently working on. I would extremely appreciate if you could email me back, as I would really love to ask you a few questions about your art making process and he the development of your theme.
    Many Regards
    Serena Riley.
