Helen Bailey, Colored Pencil
I work in colored pencil drawing animals with a concentration on horses. I draw from photographs and attempt to bring them to life on a flat 2-dimentional surface, making them come alive on paper or board.
My love of both art and horses throughout my life simply carried over when I retired from corporate life and was able to devote myself completely to producing art. Colored pencil is my medium of choice because I like to have more control over that with which I work. I was on the tour last year working from The Martin Place and enjoyed it very much. The people who come to watch and view are all fascinated to learn everyone’s process, tips and tricks.
