The Vagrants by Frederick Walker

'The Vagrants' by Frederick Walker
There are some wonderful small details within this piece. Of particular note is the wonderful brushwork within the twigs. The difference between each piece of wood allows for a series of contrasting brushstrokes. It is a wonderful range of mark making that is located within a small space. The smoke is also captured beautifully, it has the right level of transparency and movement. The range of ability perceivable within this small section is amazing.
