my version of the aztec sun stone

watercolour of my version of the Aztec sun stone. I wanted to show the underlying geometric pattern of the outside of the stone without the two serpents. The colours I used I believe where common with existing Aztec paintings

About Terry Summerson

I trained as a ships draughtsman at Swan Hunter Shipbuilders where I met several very talented artists who inspired me to 'have a go' myself. My first interest was in Calligaraphy and pen and ink drawings. I was particularly interested by the Celtic designs of the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kells and by the fantasy art of Frank Frazetta and Boris Valhaho. Working in a shipyard led me to painting and drawing ships but I also liked to paint local scenes and animals. I helped to run the Shipyard artist group and organise exhibitions of our work locally. I think that my most enjoyable work is in relation to Cartoons inspired by the work of Heath Robinson. These cartoons are usually of actual ships that I have worked or of topical subjects. I have dabbled in other mediums including relief carving on slate, Scrapper board and acrylic paintings. I have spent some time in Holland and have produced quite a lot of windmill and other dutch related painting.
