View Full Version : few pencil and pen sketches

Hi, I'm new here but beginning to get a feel for the forum. My story in short, is that I basically gave up creating art of any kind *completely* for 15 years while I was running my business. I'm getting back into it. You can see one of my recent paintings in the "classical art" forum. Here are some of the other sketches/ideas for pieces I've had recently, hope you get a kick out of one or more of them:

These are all about 1 year old, I've already improved quite a lot since then. These were literally the very first things I did after opening my sketchbook for the first time in a very long time. Funny now looking back, can see obvious flaws with all of them... in fact I think the first and last ones are embarrassingly bad now! But thought it would be worth presenting you with my rusty starting point, and seeing how I (hopefully) develop significantly over the coming months.

Your skill at drawing is far greater than mine :). Good stuff.

Nice imagery. Don't seem rusty at all! I always feel like I need to go back to drawing to improve my painting.

Welcome to the forum!
Wow, that first one is a startling image. Look forward to seeing more of your work.
