Hornsby Art Prize Entry

October 30, 2010

After much uhmming and awhing, decided to enter the image of the hunched seated model in the Hornsby Art Prize this year.

I considered this one – which is my preference but it just didn’t have it in the frame. Needs a background colour to push it out, I think?


Not The Worst Day, As Such (oil pastel, ink and wash)

Not the best either. Had to dig deep for inspiration on this one. This is a drawing that I re-visited, after creating the initial outline in pencil, I inked it and then overlaid the colours and tone with oil pastel before adding a final layer of ink wash and more outlining. The model was a little apathetic or maybe laconic.
