Four Calling Birds

Paul Van Heest's avatar Paul Van Heest

This 5 drawing series is done entirely in color pencil. This medium is not commonly used in large compositions. As a result, the compositions required approximately 1,700 hours to complete. Each piece will be framed and matted in identical sizes and with the same materials to make the set uniform. The subject matter is both serious and whimsical. The fifth, and final drawing is in progress, and will serve as a bit of a "punch line" for the series. I've longed for the appropriate event and venue to display this piece in, and believe Artprize is the perfect fit. I fully believe this entry will have an significant impact on the 2021 Artprize exhibition and it will be a joy and privilege to be involved.
