Some Gallery Work

So on the run up to Christmas last year I had the opportunity to put a couple of pieces into the 9X9 exhibition run by the Jack Tierney Gallery in Cults (Aberdeen)

I decided to take a break from digital work and have a play with some traditional methods, I really wanted to use the wood as an extra texture to the pyrography. I think it worked really well with the Kingfisher. I had some issues with the fish because when i tried to varnish it it created some very dodgy oily stains due to the woods uneveness. So I had to paint over those stains to rescue it. Still it was an interesting experience and I loved being able to get the detail into the pieces!
