IMPRESSIVE ink drawings of the British Isles will be put on show at a Wirral art gallery.
A collection of 16 framed drawings have been created by Rachael Dalzell, who travelled around taking in the sights of Wales, southern Ireland and Scotland.
Viewers will recognise drawings of Parkgate and Thurstaston.
Her technique involves several layers in the process and involves waxing, charcoal and ink.
The 28-year-old former West Kirby Grammar School pupil now lives in London, and comes back regularly.
‘By the Sea’ is exhibiting at Staacks gallery in West Kirby from tomorrow until the end of November.
Rachael said: “I did quite a lot of travelling as I love the sea. I did an art residency in southern Ireland and stayed at a fisherman’s cottage over looking the Atlantic, it was very remote and you could see dolphins swimming in the sea. It was beautiful and very inspiring, I created some pieces of The Skelligs islands.
“I stayed in Fife and Skye, and parts of Wales. I have included a lot of my work in the exhibition of Parkgate and Thurstaston over looking the Dee with Wales in the background.
“Each piece can take a week to create and waiting for each layer to dry.”
Her ink drawings are priced from £200 to £400.
The full-time artist usually works with huge two metres of canvas and paints with acrylics. So ink is a change from her usual medium.
