Artist Research – Alice Pattullo

This artist took a very different approach to those that I have already looked at as she concentrates more on ships and buildings. Her style is quite similar to Rogers in a way that they both use different thicknesses of lines and different shapes to create detail. This artist is also quite different to the ones I have already looked at as this artist concentrates on boats and the more industrial side to the coast compared to the animals that are found in Wilson’s and Rogers’ works.

Artist Research – Rachel Wilson

Another artist I looked at was Rachel Wilson who uses huge amounts of detail in her pieces. By applying shapes of all sizes in her work, Wilson defines her overall animal and also makes her work interesting to look at. I also quite like the use of colour. There is little colour used on the animal itself and where it is used and placed highlight the whole image as it is placed on shapes on the animal.

Artist Research – Lucinda Rogers

The first artist I looked into was Lucinda Rogers. I love the mixture of fine and heavy lines Rogers uses to create detail and depth in her drawings also, the use of animals in Rogers work interested me the most. For example, although this piece of work does not relate to the coastal theme, it shows the use of Rogers thin and heavy lines perfectly, producing a realistic and detailed animal.

I decided to take Rogers style and by using my own photos of donkeys I took whilst visiting Southwold beach in Suffolk. Although I did not complete my sketch in Rogers style, I was influenced by her use of animals in her work. I used watercolours to paint this and I am very pleased with the outcome. This has made me consider animals on the coast and the possibilities I can create with the use of animals.Image (5)
