Alleppey Backwaters

29 x 20 cm

Pencil and chalk on paper

Mounted in antique white 8cm mount

A drawing made of the backwater rivers in Alleppey in Kerala India. I used a loose drawing style to represent to abundance of leaves and grasses layered over and over into the distance, a Brahminy kite flies overhead.. This drawing was the starting point of my painting titled Backwater Dream and is sealed with fixative to keep the chalk in place.

Drawn on naturally coloured Fontaine paper, professionally mounted with a backing board and cellophane bag.
