ABOUT LAS CLEMENTINAS PELADAS:
The final piece in the collection, Las Clementinas Peladas are my pièce de résistance. (And don’t confuse that for “favorite”, that isn’t possible!) It combines everything I have been working towards: a fully committed black background, a bold composition, and a technically challenging subject. But the best part of this piece for me is that it started off completely differently. I had originally played it safe, but as I began to draw it out, I realized it wouldn’t be good enough to just be “good enough.” I knew this was the last piece of this journey when I felt the confidence I had going into something I felt so challenged by.
I pulled out all the stops for this piece. Nothing about this piece was easy; everything was a challenge. But I kept my head down, believed that I had it in me, and when I looked back up I realized that hard work really does pay off.
So tell me, when you look at this piece, can you smell and taste the clementines? I can. They smell like my childhood, and like Christmas in the UK. They taste like a burst of sunshine and happiness. I hope you can, because that was what I was going for. I wanted to draw something that you could connect with on a basic human level. I wanted to trigger your other senses, and hopefully even take you back to a memory or emotion.
