Louise Brook joins the exhibition with a selection of her coloured pencil artwork of wildlife, nature and pet portraits, including Husky Eyes, Sunflower and Look At Me!
Husky Eyes is a dramatic piece in coloured ink. This piece explores the use of negative space, as well as using a very limited colour palette and was a personal exploration alongside Louise’s more classic work on pet portrait commissions.
Sunflower is a delicate yet vivid piece, in coloured pencil against a neutral background. This piece was drawn last year (2020) and was specifically chosen to bring light and sunshine during the pandemic.
Look At Me! is a magnificent, vibrant peacock inspired by a recent visit to Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds, where peacocks roam freely in the grounds. Coloured pencil was a perfect medium for this subject giving a great depth of colour and allowing a lot of fine detail in the spectacular feathered display.
Our exhibition is available to view at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Covid-19 procedures will be in place to keep everyone safe.
