A Drawing A Day - Day 25

Mother and Daughter #3
I want to use more pattern in my drawings, and who better to look to than Gustav Klimt?! Some of his patterns work well in paint only and some I am very pleased with the effect here. I want the faces bigger though, they are hard for me on so small a scale...xx

Boxing Hares

Posted by Clare Brookes on Friday, January 22, 2016,

I'm pleased with the pattern in this, and the line and movenment. This is an image I'd like to do more with one day, but it's always good to start with a drawing as a way to study the image or subject...

A week of drawing...

Posted by Clare Brookes on Saturday, January 9, 2016,

So I made a whole week's worth of drawings, and I feel much better - they are quicker to work on and feel easier and more fun. Time to start trying something a little different, but first here's Day 8 - a Mexican child, such a cutie - I couldn't help drawing her. I'd like to have another go because there was a sense of ennui or perhaps almost sadness that I would like to capture...xx

Happy New Year

Posted by Clare Brookes on Saturday, January 2, 2016,

Happy New Year everyone!

Last year I wanted to do a drawing a day, but I was not very well so it came to an early end n February. However I've worked hard to do a drawing or a sketch or a design most days, and I've felt much better on the days that I've drawn something.

So. This year I'm going to try again: to set myself an new art year's resolution, and to draw every day. I'm starting with portraits. There are a few I have been wanting to do for a while. Also I think some animal portraits will...
