I wanted to get back to abstraction and this piece was inspired by Holbein the Younger’s painting ‘The Ambassadors’  (1533)

I enjoy marking in both graphite and paint and found doing this a pleasant interlude from the deep concentration of my realistic work

    This is very interesting, Julie. It looks like it’s been done in paint, but I think that’s mainly because I can’t see a bigger version. I love the way the composition is fluid, with a downward flow.
