Assorted bottles & jars on my desk, 6" x 9" sketchbook, ©2013 Nancy Van Blaricom
These are a few bottles and a jar that were on my desk the morning of August 30th, 2012
An assortment of my sketchbooks on the left & on the right some of my books on drawing.
Today while out shopping I picked up a Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. It is a delightful issue with a couple of items on drawing. I thought I'd share this page from the magazine ...
To draw does not mean simply to reproduce contours: drawing does not consist merely of line: drawing is also expression, the inner form, the plane, modeling.
See what remains after that.
- Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780 - 1867)
Also in this same issue there is a four page article on Juliette Aristides & Sherrie McGraw.
Both are fabulous artists and I'm thrilled to own both Sherrie McGraw's book The Language of Drawing as well as Juliette Aristrides book titled Lessons in Classical Drawing.
I hope you have a wonderful week-end and get out and do some sketching or drawing.
