new work

I have been taking time out from painting my miniatures to do some black and white line drawings,

This study of a badger shows one of our native wild animals in its natural woodland setting. There are still a handful of these majestic creatures living in the countryside around my home, sadly they are being culled because they are being blamed for spreading bovine TB. 

There is something very calming and meditative about drawing in pen and ink; the play of positive and negative spaces together with the decorative nature of the work, helps to calm and still the mind.
