Claire Softley

Claire Softley is an artist / illustrator who has recently made her online debut.  The image above is derived from one of a set of 35mm slides from the 50s which Claire has in her collection.  I am full of admiration and, frankly, envy, for the relaxed freedom with which Claire approaches her images: if a bit of scribbly pencil is needed, out comes the 2B; if a passage of watercolour is called for, on it goes.  The elegance and spontaneity of these pieces acts as a reminder of my failure to take heed of that perennial piece of tutorial advice: loosen up!
