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

Blue Skies Study

Posted by Clare Brookes on Tuesday, February 9, 2016,

This one was fun to do, but I'm not 100% happy so I'll probably do it again sometime. I'd like to add lots of geometric pattern in, maybe some colour...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

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...

Illustration Friday "Hidden"

Posted by Clare Brookes on Monday, September 9, 2013,


"Hidden" pencil on paper, 8/9/2013

This week's topic for Illustration Friday is "Hidden"

This topic spurred thoughts in me about hidden emotions, feelings, facial expressions. Why do we hide something so beautiful? When we have an up-rushing of emotion why do we cast our eyes down, why hide away from a lover?

No I don't have an answer, but I wanted to capture that idea - of a hidden emotion...

Illustration Friday "Lush"

Posted by Clare Brookes on Monday, September 2, 2013,

I chose an orchid a plant that, to me, is super-lush. And a super-lush boy to go with it. I think lush is a wonderful word for a man in make-up. Watch this space for a colour version as I have really enjoyed working on this piece!! xx
