Artist's description:

This mixed media painting and drawing was done as my entry for the Sky Portrait Artist of the Year 2014 competition. I am very happy to say that I was chosen to take part in the Edinburgh Heat of the competition and had a great time although my timed portrait was a great disappointment to me! The timed aspect really makes the process a lot more pressured and difficult for me as my works are usually slowly built up over time. This piece is painted in Acrylic Paint and then drawn over using Ink to define the details and shades. It is a process that I stumbled on through experimenting with mixing mediums. It started with my frustration at pencil and charcoal drawings being easily erased whilst drawing and later easily fading. I decided to use Ink because of the permanence it affords and how drawings can be built up in layers. I had also stopped using an eraser when drawing and liked to do looser more sketchy drawings that still have all the marks evident. This is one of a number of different mediums I enjoy using because of the different visual effects that can be achieved.
