The Tempest -Hand drawn with Ink and Tea on Paper by Carnegriff The Tempest -Hand drawn with Ink and Tea on Paper by Carnegriff
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!

A great piece, beautiful use of both line and lighting. The overall mix of subject matter gives a greatly aesthetic appeal to the piece. Again a gorgeous mixed media piece. Well done. This would be something that could just as appealing in black and white so the added color and texture are a definite plus. As an artist my self i would love for this to have been a piece that i had produced, and would not hesitate to display this piece among my own to show variations between artists.
Bravo ti the artist and your ability of picking and presenting your subject matter.

You have talent. This peice here, and your other pieces show it. I am amazed at this. It's gorgeous and it makes me smile. I'd give originality a 4.999. I am in complete awe at this. It is definitely one of my favorites. I feel it is a complete privilege for my eyes to get to see something like this. Bravo to you, good artist. This definitely required a lot of time, patience, and attention to detail. I can tell that the work you do is well thought out and done almost completely perfectly. I love this so, so much.
