I absolutely love Maureen's expressionistic drawings. We became aware of each other's work last year and have been chatting virtually and in front of a cappuccino ever since.
'On the Banquette'
WHO ARE YOU?
I am an artist from London via the west coast of Canada
WHY THIS ONE:
because it brings together the things in picture making that are important to me in one piece on a larger scale than I was used to : graphic line, colour and narrative.
SOMETHING ABOUT IT:
the sitters are my daughter and her boyfriend. they sat for me over an afternoon. it was going to be a study but before the sitting ended I put colour down in places and knew it was going to be a finished piece. they came back a few days later and I worked the pastel onto the ink drawing and it was finished.
this was drawn using indian ink and a chopstick onto sugar paper measuring 35 x 25 inches and the colour was worked in with unison pastels
WHERE IS IT NOW:
In my studio
