A simple, but engaging pencil work by celebrated New Zealand Artist Russell Hollings - who is exhibited amongst New Zealand’s top galleries.

Hollings (b.1948) was raised in Auckland and is a primarily self-taught artist - he has established himself over 5 decades, and his works are held in private collections internationally.

This sketch is an excellent representation of a vital piece of Holling’s artistic process.

“My work is figurative and begins from observation, something ‘seen’, however I also work from memory and imagination. I generally begin with sketchbooks, working drawings, colour notes and small paintings that are executed in situ and which later form the basis from which the final works are completed. The process is long and reflective, and in many cases enhances my painterly technique of building up and layering paint. I find it important to do this as it gives me essential breathing space, time to step back and consider all the important issues concerned with picture making including the balance of shape, the proportion of colour, the judgement of tone and general overall composition. Mood, atmosphere, reflection of landscape and subtle distinctions are all significant factors within my thinking and working process as I endeavour to portray a greater sense of truth and honesty within my paintings.”
