Lost in the Wilderness. This is a recent drawing project, that has produced lots of new digital collages from an A2 sketchbook. All the views are almost exclusively from the Wandle Valley and are part of an ongoing project, to record the Wandle Trail, leading up to an exhibition in May 2020 at the National Trust Morden Hall Park.
The original sketches were produced 'plein air' (on location) in charcoal, in large double A2 pages, to create panoramic views. Those sketches were then photographed and placed into Adobe Photoshop, so delicate layers of 'torn' colour could be added, creating a digital collage. These layers, almost like tissue paper, are placed to reflect the light and colour I experienced when creating the original charcoal drawings.
To the left is a Giclee print of 4 of the views, to make up a poster. That poster and all the prints below can be purchased as Giclee prints, hand numbered and signed by the artist. Contact the artist for more details.
