Irish artist Derek Lawlor, Dublin

My name is Derek Lawler I have been painting constantly for the past five years since I discovered a love for painting I am currently studying in Marino College on an art and sculpture course. I would describe my work as expressionist with some figurative work included I like to paint from my past and also from photographs and life studies I'm also interested in mixed media and dabble in photography sometimes.

While waiting for my college course to start I studied a German artist and tried thier techniques see the figure painting.

The portrait head was a project from my last course to use an irish artist as inspiration for my self portrait the artist I used was Louie le Broque. The small studie was a studie of a painting by Walter Sickert its a guick sketch in oil paint of a figure resting her head on a pillow.

The abstract figure on a black background was an attempt to try something new and an abstract interpretation of some feelings I was experiencing.
