  1. From the album: Drawings and sketches

    Both of these were done as exercises back in 2005 when I was trying to get back into art after a thirty-year break. Both exercises came from a great book for beginners, called: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. Drawing number 1 was a pretty fair attempt at a self-portrait, I thought. (You will notice that I still had a little bit of hair around my ears and the back of my neck in those days!) 😂 Number 2, the "upside-down" drawing was a particular revelation for me! Basically, you had to turn the book upside-down, (thus confusing the right side of the brain,) and then copy the drawing just like that. Finally, having cheated the right side of your brain out of its tendency to make you draw things in its own stylized images and just copy what was in front of you, I was quite surprised by the results... Never mind... Betty Edwards can explain it a whole lot better than I can!
  2. This is another really useful trick that I learned from: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. Tip: (From the book...) Instead of drawing, for example, a man's arm with his hand resting on his hip - look at the space between his arm and his body. Do not look at his arm and do not look at his body. Look only at the space in between his arm and his body... Then draw that space! The same thing applies when it comes to drawing the outside edge of the man's arm... Look at the nearest object to his arm and draw the space between that object and the man's arm! That way, you overcome the tendency of the left side of your brain to make you draw things in the simplified symbol-like images, with which that part of your brain rationalizes the world around you. Then, having overcome this annoying tendency of the left-side of your brain to continually butt-in and interfere with your art - (which is, essentially, a job for the right side of the brain) - you end up easily being able to draw what is actually there - rather than what the left side of your brain would very much like you to draw...!! Try it - you'll be amazed!!
  3. From the album: Drawings and sketches

    This was another practice sketch that I did from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards, back in 2005 when I was trying to get back into art after a 30-year break. This little exercise was based on copying a portrait of Gustave Corbet, and it introduced the use of charcoal with a little bit of shading here and there.
  4. All of my work is rendered in either graphite, tinted graphite or tinted charcoal. I have tried to sell my work on Etsy, and e-bay without success. Has anyone had any success in selling their graphite or charcoal artwork? Many people have told me that it is difficult to sell "Black and white" drawings because most people are interested in buying colorful paintings. Any suggestions or input would be most appreciated.

    Serenity

    From the album: Flea's Collection

    The original image was NOT done by me. This is just a re-draw I did from a book. I don't often do this, I just loved the image and had to have a version of my own.
