319 - BLENDING IN - DAVE EDWARDS - COLOURED PENCILS - 2011 by 


FEATURED BY PAINTERS’ UNIVERSE – 4th February 2011

FEATURED BY SURREALISM GROUP – 6th february 2011

The world is full of faceless people. Some prefer it that way; they are shy and blend in with their surroundings like human chameleons. Others long for some sort of recognition; a smile or a nod.

I used coloured pencils and fineliner pens for this.

I often incorporate faces and figures into scenery; mainly bricks and stones, but Linmarie of Redbubble sent me a Bubblemail in which she wrote these words:

“I know most of your art surrounds around buildings, but you could expand it (to include) palm trees (and have) the couple … like they are coming out of the trees.”

Thanks for the inspiration Linmarie

For source material I used photos I took in Spain.

If you like people camouflaged as bricks, here is another I did recently:

This picture has been a sort of turning point for me. I’ve even written a Journal Entry about it.

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.

    Wonderful concept! This reminds me of a Magic Eye picture with the figures popping out of the background unexpectedly.
