Hello and welcome to ‘Racing Lines’ – art featuring sport and more, made with pen and ink with washes of watercolour, sometimes acrylic and pastel, evoking a 1950s French style.
I love the energy, tenacity and skill of sport. I draw the lines spontaneously as the action happens or from video, so the movement dominates, then I add the colour, which reinforces the energy of each piece. At this time, the Six Nations Rugby tournament is a great subject and I’m looking forward to following each match with my pens and watercolours.
‘Racing Lines’ began in 2012 with cycling, so if you are a fan, there’s plenty here for you, especially the Tour de France, the Vuelta, and the Tour of Britain and Yorkshire. There maybe something you recognise – perhaps you were there?
Away from sport, there are themes of holidays, the garden with its wildlife, flowers, our cat snoozing… things at a gentler pace you could say.
