Evening Light - Back View. (framed) by Dee Ross

ARTIST NOTES: Drawn in an untutored life drawing night class during 2014. I enjoyed capturing the glow of the light, contouring the edge of the model. The primary medium is a range of soft pastels and conte.

ARTIST BIO

Dee Ross / ARTIST RESUME

\r\n

 

\r\n

 

\r\n

 

\r\n

I prefer to work Plein-Air or from life, as well as in the studio situation. I enjoy drawing and painting landscape and animals. I have also reignited an interest in life drawing.  Drawing what I love and subjects that I have a connection with, will hopefully show through in my artwork. I regularly visit Art Galleries and I have an interest in illustration.

\r\n

\'Painting is not only to copy the object, but to seize harmony between numerous relations\' ... Paul Cezanne

MEDIUM

\r\n

I mainly work in Soft Pastel, Acrylic Paint, Charcoal and Conte. In recent years I have also worked in Chinese Ink Painting, Watercolour and 35mm Photography. I use archival art materials and framing whenever possible.
