Art Up Close


Here are some close-ups of my final post-graduate work at the end of last year.
The fine almost obsessive-looking detail was one of the most important elements of the work. Part of the written submission explored this so I thought I would share some of the images I took.
The pigments used included tea infusions, indian ink, charcoal, acrylic paint, coloured pencil, white ink, and watercolour paint.
