Inspiration in Japan

Following a period of hiatus, I thought I would revisit some travel experiences and influences I’ve adapted into some of my drawings.

These small works were inspired by a trip with the family to Japan, the models captured from fashion magazines collected along the way, all the time so sweet and well groomed, these lovely little drawings were created with carbon pencil and acrylic paint on paper xx

Creating a Jigsaw Puzzle of my artwork is an interesting consideration, I think this painting Reflection would make for a somewhat challenging puzzle.

What appeals to you when chosing a Jigsaw Puzzle? The size, number of pieces, colours or complexity? Do you buy for yourself or as a gift? What do you think would be a fair price for a limited edition Jigsaw Puzzle?

So many questions, anyway, this lovely painting ‘Reflection (View of Mt Warrenheip)’ is now for sale (90 x 90cm) DM me for pricing, and as a Print see the SHOP tab for details.
