a few more old drawings

here’s a few more of those old drawings from the other day. There isn’t much of a story behind them, but such as it is is in this link: https://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/old-drawings-i-just-found-again/

One thought on “a few more old drawings

  1. It is so important to be able to draw our ideas.

    I think a lot of us are intimidated by making perfectly scaled drawings, or even just “perfect” as our mind sees it, that it stifles our creativity within. I know I struggle with this.

    Looking at these drawings I imagine the process taking not much more than ten to fifteen minutes. It looks to me that the illustrator jotted down what he saw as a study of the piece in front of him. Which is also an important ability to practice.

    I have been struggling to draw on a regular basis, though I know I need to. This post has been a small inspiration to pick up the pencil and get at it.
    Thanks PF
