'Dylan Thomas' portrait
Dylan Thomas portrait (2018)

A4 in size - Inks, pencils, chalk, coloured and marbled card.

As a lover of poetry who grew up in Wales and read lots of Dylan Thomas's poetry in my teens and twenties, this recent commission was a joy to do. It came together fairly quickly and all the coloured and marbled card was chosen pretty rapidly too - the whole thing felt right. It has a dark look to it which is something I wanted, and like my recent Thomas Hardy portrait I used white card for the face to add a stark contrast and give it an arresting quality. The original is about to be hung on a wall in South Wales, which makes it all the more special - just thirty A4 giclee prints of it are available.
