The Tempest -Hand drawn with Ink and Tea on Paper by Carnegriff
The Tempest -Hand drawn with Ink and Tea on Paper
The tempest is drawn with calligraphy ink and graphite on heavy 535gsm bockingford watercolour paper and washed with layers of tea.  I have uploaded this image to show some of the floral detail that goes into my work - I aim to create an image, that from a distance hangs together and reads well - but on closer inspection is constructed entirely by natural elements, flora, flowing lines, branches twigs roots and earth..   The Tempest refers to the strength in nature's storms - and the extremes of weather that shape our environment.  As we become further removed from nature it is forceful moments such as storms that remind us that we are at the mercy of our planets natural events.  I normally share images of the development of these pieces on instagram or facebook - you can follow as carnegriff on instagram and Carne Griffiths Artist on Facebook - Thanks!

Long time no Journal Entry...

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 5, 2013, 6:31 AM




Thought it was about time I said 'Hi' in the Journal and stopped being so antisocial.... seems like I have less and less time nowadays and so this seems the best way to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has been following my work both here and elsewhere.  It has been a very busy year for both artwork and homelife and I am getting used to juggling the two and dividing my time up better - there is less time however for sharing commenting and replying to people here but I WILL, I always do!  
I'm also very pleased to be opening a 2 man exhibition in London tomorrow night - the 6th September where I will be showing some artwork I have shared here on DA and some new works.... there will be new prints and postcard packs available and the work includes the fantastic paintings of Rowan Newton as well as myself and even includes a digitally assembled giclee print especially for the gallery (I know.... me and photoshop.... who'd have thought it)

So if you can ... please make a little trip to see the work at the Ben Oakley Gallery - it is situated inside greenwich market, South London, it's a lovely space and I know you'll get a great welcome there.

Big love to all

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
