Soul on Fire
56 x 76 x 0.1 cm
Alcohol ink and Acrylic Marker
Heavyweight Yupo Paper
Wowzers. This is different for me! Not the alcohol inks...but the fact I saw a figurative nude form in the piece and had to draw her out.
"Soul on Fire" is evocative and sensual, defiant and yet seemingly shy. I followed the light and shades of this piece to create this beautiful female form that exudes power and strength, but is seemingly unaware of her beauty.
I'm not actually sure I'll ever do figurative again - it went against my usual form of creative expression and I can't say I was completely comfortable in creating her, but oh my, how I love and adore her now. She demands a new forever home where she'll be empowering, demanding attention, and adored for a lifetime.
The colours in this piece are stunning and shift under different lights. Pinks, burnt oranges, siennas, umbers, black, mauves and gorgeous shimmering metallic golds play with the light to form contrasting harmonies that will be shown off in any frame. This comes unframed. As with all my ink pieces it has been spray varnished and with a UV protectant but should be framed under museum/UV protectant glass to preserve the archival quality of the inks.
