I love to draw! No surprise, I'm an artist. I've been drawing all my life, This last two weeks I have been drawing Christmas Commissions in charcoal on toned paper. I've been doing a lot of paintings this year so to do some drawings was a welcomed treat. There is something about mark making, the sound and feel of the pencil going across the paper or surface. If you draw something or someone, you really get to know your subject matter. You simply take the time to study every inch of it or them, not many people ever take the time to study our world like an artist does.
Now, if I had the money and the space, I'd do etchings, I've had a few classes in intaglio and relief printing and loved every minute. Maybe in another life-time!
I finished the drawings today and I'll start painting a new commission tomorrow. I so enjoyed doing them and I think they look great!
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
