Ian Rawling PS | Soft Pastel Pencil | 16 x 16 inches

Ian’s emergence as a contemporary realist  painter is a fairly recent one but has been a long time in development. Early promise at school was followed by a degree in design from Sheffield Hallam University which was supplemented by chalk & charcoal pavement drawings. A  subsequent career in art for Ian followed as a successful greeting card artist & his move to fine art & the realist style he now enjoys has been a natural progression.

In using his chosen medium of pastel Ian creates his highly detailed paintings, paying particular attention to the imperfections, textures & highlights found in otherwise ordinary everyday subjects. The crisp shine on an egg yolk or the subtlety of a burnt crust are crafted with both precision & imagination to help create Ian’s bold & intriguing images.
