Drawings

A while ago I did a post about my inability to draw hands and how I had sat and practised a bit using an old book from the 1940s.

I am not too bad at copying other things when it comes to drawing, not so great at doing something from scratch but I did say that I would put up some of the old drawings I have done – they are copies of other pictures but done from just looking at them, so no tracing or anything. (Caution: Some nudity!!!)

The first two are copies of an Edvard Munch picture and the famous The Kiss by Klimt (one of my favourite artists – don’t look at the hands…)

Then copies of some Salvador Dali sketches and an Alphonse Mucha painting (another of my favourite artists – again try to ignore the manglewurzel hands!)

Then some baby feet copied from a book about drawing and a sailor pin up girl by Gil Elvgren (another favourite of mine.)

And finally a nude from a book on drawing I think!

I shall make an effort to draw more and to try and work out what my own style is. The problem with preferring to copy is that I don’t really know what my style is (other than drawing rather bizarre cartoons but that’s different!)

  1. Completely agree about finding your own style – and don’t knock your cartoons – I haven’t seen them, but never knock what you love doing – it comes from your heart and you can always develop that 🙂 I come from a family where realistic art was most appreciated, and it stopped me developing my own style for a long time. Now I encourage my son to develop his style, because though it’s not “realistic”, it’s amazing and rich with imagination. All the best, and I like your fabric arts 🙂 (liked you on FB)
