Illustration Friday – on not drawing
I really wish I could draw. I admire the work of so many artists and now I am working in a school I love the idea of learning techniques as they are taught in schools these days; fantastic. One of the nicest things about twitter and the web is that people who create work can quickly send links to all sorts of art. I appreciate this is not the same as seeing things in the flesh. Looking closely at art from different perspectives and handling pieces can make such a difference; as can talking to the artists, so Open Studios can be greatly illuminating. The web though offers one little gem – Illustration Friday, a theme is posted each week and artists submit their work. This week’s theme is ‘Pattern’, so I thought I would add this petite creation, generated using brushes on the i-phone.
