Artist's description:

An original Pencil drawing by Paul Stowe -

The last in my series of 'Bodyscape' drawings, and one of my favourites from the entire collection. Sometimes a drawing can look better on screen than it does on paper - the ability to make minute adjustments to contrast, brightness and mid tone levels can make an ordinary piece become darker, sharper and more pleasing to the eye - not in this case :) I love the original drawing so much and the online scanned version doesn't do it justice, so much so I was reluctant to upload it - still I have and I hope you like it.

Following a 20 year Hiatus Paul picked up his pencils again and started drawing back in 2012. Turning professional in 2016 Paul has won accolades across the globe, initially exhibiting and selling work in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand he now resides in the centre for contemporary British Art and the Tate Modern Gallery, St. Ives, cornwall.
From his open studio and commercial gallery in the town he spends hours, weeks and months drawing incredibly detailed images inspired by the plethora of artists and art in the local area.
His work is on permanent display in the www.stowe.gallery in St. Ives and with individual and corporate collections across the world.

No. 8 in my Bodyscape Series - the idea is to produce a number of drawings exploring the human form, I wanted to avoid 2 elements 1. Facial expression and 2. Naughty bits Why? well the 1st point was because I wanted the pose to make the viewer think about the emotional state of the model rather than a facial feature - are they sad, distressed, lonely or happy? The 2nd point was not because I am against full on Nudity, I think when done correctly it is incredibly powerful and thought provoking - I just wanted to avoid the censors and enable my work to be seen by as many people as possible - I also wanted to allow my 1st point to be the main focus and not the size of someones X, Y or Z!! You will also notice that there is no shadow or background on any of the pieces - again this was to make the body the main focus. I have really enjoyed the series and I am sure I will add to it as time goes by.

Drawn as always on smooth Bristol Board with Faber Castell 9000 series pencils and a Tomo Zero eraser - size for this drawing was c40cm X 30cm

The drawing now comes without its frame to reduce shipping and purchase costs - if you are interested in purchasing it with its bespoke hand made frame, just let me know.
