About "Cubs Can Climb"

Executed in pen and ink with watercolor pencil tinting. The ideal was not that of realism / naturalism, but to present a graphic interpretation of the animal. Eyes for the most part are highlighted - direct contact with the viewer is thus established.

About Paul

Paul Roumanoff

The animals appear to be executed with the intention of a realistic interpretation. If examined closely this will seem to be an incorrect evaluation. They exist solely as exercises in the power of the use of line. There is no softening in the shading, the linear quality merely suggest the areas of light and darkness. Patterns (the lines of the Zebra, spots of the leopard and cheetah, fur and mane of the lion) are exaggerated in the way they sinuously follow the bodies underlying structures and curvature. Tinting is used to highlight areas of focus (eyes, mouth) as well as break the monochromatic appearance of the work. Where the sun or moon are not shown the tinting provides a mere hint of colour. In the sun and moon works colour provides a strong signifier. This is done to create areas of maximum interest in the overall linear framework of the works. On examination the works are an abstract arrangement of line, which on viewing as a whole takes on the illus ional appearance of reality. I work in this way so that each animal is a technical challenge, that in order to succeed must also provoke a feeling of movement and emotion, both in the pictorial representation as well as the viewer.
