(three drawings of Marilyn Monroe 10x20 approx.)
Hello everyone, me again - I just felt like sharing a bit tonight as I am sort of moping around, don't know why, just one of those silly moods - so out of sheer bordom I decided to go to my studio and clean up the mess in there (it was screaming for a clean for weeks). I was going through all my boxes of various supplies when I came accross all my sketch pads and pencils - these three drawings I had placed inside a brand new large sketch book and then put away - I had totally forgotten all about them (I did them maybe 8 months ago or so)...and of course, I chose famous people to draw, there are a few of Elvis as well, but he is framed so its a bit hard to take a photo of him.
These drawings were my very first attempt at sketching and shading and trying to capture facial expressions - I sketch them from photos. Since then I have done lovely portraits of my children and these are framed and hanging on their walls in their bedrooms.
So now, once again, the drawing bug is starting to bite again and I am thinking of doing a mixed media artwork with lots of watercolour pencils, doing similar drawings but with colour - I don't know where this will lead, but its a lovely surprise when something good comes of it.
Well, that's it for me for tonight, I will return when I have a new painting to post - until then, I will follow you guys and enjoy your lovely artwork! Cheers and happy creating to all, Val
