Garlic Bulbs


Coloured Pencil and Graphite

Image Size (cm): 16 x 20 P

I love the delicate colours and papery skin of these big, fat, garlic bulbs.  An ideal subject for my favourite technique of applying colour first and then melting it with a solvent which leaves the paper impregnated with a hint of the delicate colours and the surface unchanged so then all the lovely crinkly, details can be applied over this colour base using a selection of graphite pencils. A graphite drawing on a tinted background.

My originals are set in off white, deep-cut mounts.

This image is also available as a limited edition medium sized print.
