I am busily painting knickerless witches, but it is time-consuming, so in the meantime I wanted to show you my first actual commissioned digital drawing – so far all the digital ones have been done to please myself, and have generally appeared on Cat-of-the-Day (not daily; not all cats).
This is Pauline Squire. Based on a photograph, but I think the trick with drawing from a photograph is to use it only as a guide, not to slavishly try to reproduce it. Rather like my drawings that are done as an image of how I think a scene might have looked, you still have to use your imagination.
For those of you who’re fellow swimmers, Pauline’s about to start running some courses at Vobster, and she can be contacted via these links:
And if you’re interested to see what the original photo looked like you can see that on the first link I showed you, too. And yes, I am, as ever, open to commissions… 😉
