One paper drawing with graphite and acrylic

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is inspired by the motions of the waves on Rainbow Beach. During the stimulus experience, I felt connected to the ocean waves and want to portray the hypnotic feeling I experienced. Leonardo da Vinci dedicated his life to studying the beauty and destructive nature of water. Like, da Vinci, I want to capture my thought process through formal exploration of line and texture instead of observing a single moment in time.

ARTWORK PROCESS

Shannon drew this work by referencing a duck photo. She then added the water detail by spontaneously drawing the lines. She then painted the background with acrylic paint which created a rippling effect on the paper.
