Welcome from India and here is the very first piece in the India collection!
The sun on it's way down from a high place in Varkala, Kerala on the South East coast...and I am armed with one gold pen and a black marker. I hope you like the result!
Kerala is beautiful at the moment, everything lush, sparkling and huge.....including the odd spider hiding in my place from the rain!
I made a number of individual sun paintings over the last few days and collaged one onto the paper prior to sitting down for this drawing. I then drew the tree over in situ. The highlights on the foliage are in gold ink, very hard to capture in my photographs. I hope the close ups help.
I've included a shot of the tree obviously at a different angle and time of day.
The black paper is from a little stationery shop in the local village and it had to be rolled for the bike ride back so there are some fold marks! But it will flatten out over time. Drawing will be posted flat and well protected.
Depending on where I am on my travels and the proximity of postal service, please allow 2 weeks from dispatch to delivery... but could be sooner. I will give an ongoing update on progress.
Any questions, get in touch.
Thanks for looking !
