Congratulations to Matthew McNulty who won 1st Prize at the Kedleston Art Awards.
When Matthew first came to Wings Cumrbia we noticed that he had a flair for drawing, but it was always the same sort of thing, Marvel Comic sketches in pencil and lots of them! This is the first piece of artwork that Matthew has completed on his own from start to finish.
From a self –portrait photograph, Matthew has looked at the technique of Pop Art. He has manipulated his image using a computer program called Serif, and on stretched paper has painted his design using acrylic paints’.
Matthews words were:
"I really enjoy drawing – but it’s always the same things. This is the first time I have followed an art project and used acrylic paints instead of pencil. This is a really big thing for me, and it turns out – I CAN DO THIS TOO!!!"
