Chris Morgan – New Drawings

“A TOAST TO A LOST LOVE”

My name is Chris Morgan and i’m a graphite pencil artist. I would like to achieve a caption or expression of a story in each piece and so the title is very important, i will normally come up with the title first and then think how i would like that title to be put into pictoral form. Thanks for taking the time to check out my work.

“A BREAK FROM THE LIMELIGHT”

“THE CARD THAT COULD MAKE A MILLION”

I first started to draw at a very young age. I loved the fact that I could start with a completely blank page and within moments see the beginnings of a picture emerge. It was always my favourite medium as a child and any chance I got to draw, I would, even if I had to sometimes make do with the back of a used envelope. And as the years at school went on I always preferred the pencil to paints, although I love and respect painters I have always found the pencil more instantaneous. A true reflection of yourself. I never do studies of my drawings the first pencil stroke on the board is the starting point of that piece and I will endeavour to journey through the work until it is finished. And as I am a completely self taught artist I will sometimes find my self experimenting on a piece to render a texture such as fur, grass or stone which can be quite nerve racking!

As I was born and raised in Staffordshire I find my influences come from my surrounding environment and love to draw the beautiful scenery and animals that the country side has to offer. I always put my all into each piece of work I create and hope this shows through in my final piece.
