A series of minimally designed black and white watercolour paintings using a black Caran D’ache watercolour pencil and water and occasionally some added work with a Derwent Chinese White Pastel pencil.

This was done as a commission but having painted the pencil work digitally the client has requested that it be painted more traditionally. As such I am now creating it as a watercolour painting which, when finished, I'll post in my blog so that you can compare the difference.

I'm also working on a series of new pieces that will also be done in traditional watercolour.

Meanwhile, here's the digital version which is available as a giclee fine art print.

This series of work is inspired by a fascination with the goth movement, and particularly its interest in gothic fiction.

Gothic literature, the birth of which is widely thought of as being the publication of Horace Walpole's 1764 novel The Castle of Otranto, mines a rich seam of dark and macabre themes that is often underpinned with a satirical awareness that is perhaps best demonstrated by Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

The precursor to the gothic novel was the work by the Graveyard Poets, a group of
pre-Romantic English poets of the 18th century whose work was characterised by somber meditations on the nature of death. Thomas Gray's Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard is widely thought of as being the greatest Elegy in English literature and became the inspiration for the first piece in the series, 'Elegy', which is still being
worked on.

There are a number of well established elements that have become integral to the 'Gothic' theme; stock characters such as tyrants, persecuted maidens, vampires and angels inhabit a dark world of castles, melancholic landscapes and Gothic architecture intended to create an other worldly and dramatic scenario.
