Exotic Damsel 2

Description : This is the second of the Damsel set of pastel drawings done in the art deco style. They were inspired by drawings noticed on the British TV program called the Antique Roadshow. The originals shown on TV were drawn about 100 years ago by an unknown artist, and my wife fell immediately in love with them when first seen on TV. In a mad moment, I said I would drawn them for her. They were my first attempt at pastel drawing.

After 40 years practice as a professional registered Architect, I still have a hand in residential home design. As a much younger fellow, I frequently drew commissions for the public (pencil portraits), as well as professional architectural renderings for other Architects (who didn't have a talent for free drawing). Architectural renderings were an artistic presentation of how building designs would appear in 3D eg. with trees, cars and people etc before computers took over. Architecture was the far better prospect of paying bills, but I had won an art competition before the age of twenty, and was separately awarded a commendation from the Royal Melbourne Show for an art entry made whilst still at high school. Free art drawing was predominantly shelved during my professional years, but now I have resurrected my desire and talent to create artwork. In the past, I have drawn and painted in a number of mediums such as pencil, charcoal, oils, oil and chalk pastel, water colour and gauche. I'm not particularly intimidated using any medium or mixing mediums. I relish perspective and high definition detail, and find myself captivated, if not lost in the two dimentional micro world flowing from my brush or pen. High definition drawing is relatively rare in todays 'contemporary' art world of huge canvass, broad brush slop and slap, but I absolutely love creating it, however tedious it can be sometimes to finalise a work.
