‘Black Magic Woman” is an original, realistic, graphite pencil drawing on Stonehenge paper. Highly detailed, it shows a woman seated deep within a forest, accompanied by her spirit animal, a long eared owl. One of a series of artworks where I’ve featured a figure along with another creature to give an unusual perspective. I love to give the viewer a chance to imagine what story is unfolding here and perhaps what’s gone before. Is she a witch or a shamanka, or maybe simply a falconer out training her birds. The Stonehenge paper I’ve used has a slight tooth to it, which allows a full range of tones from pale silvery grey to rich black. With less intense realism as is associated with smoother paper, it also gives a slight looseness to the drawing which in turn demonstrates my own particular style of working. The textures achieved on the trees could only be achieved with this kind of paper surface. Measuring approximately 18 x 11.25 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a 3cm square section, brushed pewter frame which suits these monochrome works perfectly. The total size is about 24 x 17.25 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
