Artist's description:

Original ink and Watercolour drawing representing my response to the Poem 'Thistles' by the Poet Ted Highes - painted in September 2017, using watercolour paper, Indian ink and schminke watercolour paints.

"From the underground stain of a decayed Viking.
They are like pale hair and the gutturals of dialects.
Every one manages a plume of blood.

Then they grow grey like men."

A lively expressive painting with line variations and splatters caused by the vigorous use of a traditional dip pen and sweeping watercolour marks and splatters, this gives the Artwork a fresh and immediate style where my 'working out' can be seen and enjoyed.

Materials used:

300gsm watercolour paper, Artists quality watercolour paints and Indian ink

Thistles - A4 ink portrait of a man, ink & watercolour (2017)
