Artwork description:

'Prince of Thieves' is a still life coloured pencil drawing with the addition of a little graphite pencil and ink to complete. As I often do with my still life pictures, I have added some actual life to the composition, this time in the form of a magpie perched on the silver jug. As well as concentrating on achieving a high level of intricate detail, using layer upon layer of pigment and burnishing carefully I have also built up the depth of colour to achieve highly realistic reflections on the jug.

Measuring approximately 22 x 10 inches this drawing is presented in a white mount and framed with a complimentary distressed silver gilt frame to a total size of 30 x 18 inches, ready to hang.

This tall narrow format is ideal for adding interest to an awkward space in a room, perhaps at the side of a large piece of furniture or beside a door.

Materials used:

Coloured pencils, ink, graphite pencil, paper
