271 - MEADOWLARK CASTLE - DAVE EDWARDS - COLOURED PENCILS & FINELINERS - 2009 by 


FEATURED BY EXCEPTIONAL EKPHRASIS GROUP – 24th October 2009

There’s a story behind this one.

I had been chatting with Adgray/Chookas about her Exceptional Ekphrasis Group and I suggested that if she chose one of my pictures from my portfolio I would try to do a different version of it for the group. Adgray chose Meadowlark and asked if I’d do it in my mosaic style. Here it is and for the record, it is done using coloured pencils and Staedtler Fineliner pens on A3 sized white card.

Here are the original drawings I did:

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Ooh, lovely Dave! I love the orginal, but this is smashing!!! Love the detail of the castle in the background, and the green grass in the foreground really sets off the strong blues and yellows of the bird and the stones :) :)

  • Thanks Alexandra.
