This is my beautiful artist friend Tereza. It's a really really pale, delicate drawing, I've made it stronger for the computer. In the flesh it has such an ethereal quality...xx

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
