I wander down the road to a life drawing session once a week. I couldn't do without it - the discipline of drawing from life is very important to me. I tend to work with charcoal or graphite on large sheets of paper.
I like the smudges and extra marks my hand makes as I capture these immediate drawings of real life models, in the room alongside everyone else. It gives the work a fresh vitality, and an energy I want to keep.
So I have had these fine art giclee prints made then in the same spirit - you might see some of the original smudges in the images, and sometimes some faint first lines. I haven't cleaned up the digital files too much. I've left the smudges in. It's all part of the work for me!
These open edition giclee prints of my life drawings are professionally printed in the UK, on Hahnemuhle Bamboo 290gsm, a thick, acid-free environmentally friendly paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton.
A4: 210 x 297mm, £25
A3: 297 x 420mm, £45.
Please choose the size you would like by clicking on the orange Choose Options shopping cart button, and selecting from the menu.
I will post your prints out in environmentally friendly packaging - no plastic. Please re-use any packaging if you can, before recycling. Even better, the eco cellophane wrapping I have chosen is made from corn starch; it can be recycled or put in your compost bin. Hurray!

Every week, I walk down the road to a life drawing session at a local artist’s studio. It’s right by the River Thames, and the back doors open out onto a rickety jetty, a tangle of houseboats, the Thames’ oldest working ferry, and a resident gang of swans and ducks, noisy opportunists looking for a snack.
Every week, two different models pose for us, a hush descends, and we draw.
These beautiful giclee prints are made from some of my favourite drawings from those weekly sessions.
