Seamus Heaney portrait (2017)

Original A4 in size - Inks, pencils, magazine collage, coloured card.

This portrait of the famous Irish poet, Seamus Heaney was finished in early 2017. The collaged background represents the moors of Ireland - and the tie is made up of close ups of an Irish cabbage leaf (a staple food for the Irish - and I love the texture of it, especially close up). It was a a lot of fun to do (the bright white hair in particular) and I like the idea of delving into more portraits of famous literary figures and poets.
