Really focussed on the light and shadows to give this fellow the correct form before I started in on the details and am quite happy with how plump and round he’s turned out I’ve used #fabercastellpolychromos pencils on #fabrianoartistico paper in this piece. #wren #colourpencil #ornithology #birdart #britishbirds

Vanessa's new print is up! https://apothacaryandwren.bigcartel.com ... tion-print
Hand deckled, signed and fully archival giclée print
Measuring 10.5” by 9”
Limited edition (edition of 100)

‘The Apothecary’ was part of a recent group show titled “The Poison Garden” at Antler Gallery, Portland. The show focused on the idea of danger masked by beauty, I’m often inspired by duality in nature so this theme was right up my street!
My portrayal of a wise owl as the Apothecary was in recognition of the great knowledge these early pharmacists had as well as the power of life and death they held over those who came before them. The two plants I’ve incorporated into the composition are Poison Ivy and Echinacea, the latter being a cure to the former.

Dang, was out of town and missed the sale and print.

If anyone picked up an extra Apothecary, or is having second thoughts, please let me know.

:cheers:

The framed Foley is very nice.

However, that lemon & lime/Sprite kitchen is hideous.
