Back to work…
Lately I’ve been trying to fine-tune my skills with pen and ink and with graphite pencils. I had offered some of my work here…such as Big Gramp’s House, this old scratch board work, and The Eyes. They seemed to be well received, but I know there is so much I still have to learn.
I picked up a piece of charcoal and did this quick sketch from an old photograph of No3 when she was little.
It was enough to get me wanting to do more. With this renewed urge to create, and do it well, I thought of taking classes. But my schedule is such that it’s too difficult to fit them in. I have found some good information online and hope to find more.
One I especially like is this video showing how artist Terry Jackson from Australia does her beautiful, life-like pencil and graphite animal pictures.
There are many of you out there that do the type of art I like and do it much better than I. Maybe with your help and suggestions, I’ll be able to improve my work.
