Everyone Loves a Chap with a Fine Line Pen and a bit of spare time

I am quietly working my way through a few well known paintings although I'm drawing them rather than painting them which would take far too long and I am far too old to do such things as well as not having the patience to complete such tasks. Anyway my last picture was American Gothic. Not really a lot of room for Artistic Licence with this one so I stuck fairly close to the original I have now started on my next drawing of what is a very well known painting here in Britain it is The Monarch of the Glen. Not what I was planning to draw but it turned up on a TV show and I thought OOOooooooo that is ideal.

I'm still here and still drawing

In order to prove I am still about here are a couple of my most recent pictures based on the art of other folk who are far more talented than myself.

The erratic nature of my blogging

 I am now a very erratic Blogger the poor old blog is feeling rather neglected. But I remain busy and have been drawing a fair bit in the last 12 months. I have always enjoyed drawing, it is a strange thing as those of you who also draw, paint or do other creative things know. Lurking deep inside us is some sort of force that keeps us doing whatever we do through thick and thin. I have many ideas in my head at present and have stated to draw in a larger pad which for reasons I dont know has meant I am going to draw a little series of pictures with angels in. They are rather dodgy angels. After all I might enjoy drawing but I have never actually said I was any good at it, it's a very personal style and I am not entirely sure the old masters would approve.
