March 2009 - I have been developing a unique style I have called Fractured over the past two years. It is inspired by the Cubists and Russian Constructivists, but then developed in my own style. I want to create a drawing that is semi abstract, with the image still recognisable, bringing attention to perspective and light. I can achieve real detail with coloured pencils. My favourites are Derwent Coloursoft, they are a wonderful pencil to use as you can put layer upon layer of colour on the paper until you achieve the look you require.
