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.
