Pencil: 50 Shades of Grey

UPDATE: Unfortunately this exhihition is cancelled due to a family matter.

I am so excited about this exhibition. it has been a long time in my mind!. I love drawing in its own right and I would settle down and draw once a year. It is all consuming. There was no time for the painting or commissions or prints. So I would let myself draw every January for a couple of weeks. I would always challenge myself. I drew up a full sized telephone box. The sketch was 8.5ft tall and 3.5ft wide. It took four week and 22 pencils.

This year I made a decision to go ahead with an exhibition of my pencil drawing and I have been working solidly for 6 months. I based the exhibition on all the things that I love in my life. From childhood playing with my Sindy (Action man was her boyfriend), Shopping in Brown Thomas at Christmas (I have always been obsessed with bags), Playing cards all summer, going to see U2 in concert 1987…you can see my train of thought!.

The exhibition is opening on the 1st of November from 6-8pm at The Dean Hotel Harcourt Street, Dublin 2. RSVP. paintings@orlawalsh.com or through ‘contact me’ on my website.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
