BRUCE – Pencil & ink on Paper
It’s been a while since i posted anything, so i thought i would write a little update about what I’ve been getting up to since my February Exhibition. I get asked quite regularly to do portraits. When i was first teaching myself to draw, i would sit and copy photographs to sharpen up my drawing skills. After a while, people took notice and would ask me to do a drawing for them, usually a traditional style portrait of a family member or a pet. At the time, i wasn’t thinking about drawing in a particular style. For me, it was simply ‘drawing practice’. It helped me develop and lay down the building blocks for a bigger vision that i had for my personal work. Over the years though, this type of traditional drawing has given me the opportunity to get paid work while i continue to work on building my own creative vision.
At the moment, I’m working on two commissions which i will write about over the next few weeks. My last commission was ‘Bruce’, a pencil & ink portrait drawing.
