Nigel Humphreys, drypoint, aluminium and Somerset satin

This is one of the best pieces of drypoint I’ve seen in a long time. What attracts me? Firstly the subject matter; the fact that the face is only a slight impression leaving me to fill in the blanks and create my own story.

Secondly, well it’s got to be the shading. Beautifully rendered. I’ll have to ensure I look at more of Nigel’s work.
