BUILDING AN ARTWORK FROM SCRATCH.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, illustrtation, ink drawing, motoring artwork, Pencil drawing/

Having been trained in the old-fashioned way –  I know that building an artwork from scratch, although a slow process,  can have very satisfactory results – for the artist and the viewer/buyer.

This particular Motoring Artwork depicts the late, amazing, Scottish Rally Driver, Colin McRae, MBE. World Rally Champion, with his Subaru Impreza WRC.   To complete the artwork, I have added in two further details, one, the Family Crest overwritten with a short written script and the other, the Flag of Scotland.

It took two months plus to complete this artwork and I hope you enjoy it.

I CAN’T FIND ANYTHING TO DRAW OR PAINT.

Believe it or not, I have actually been informed thus, by students – students who didn’t know that such a statement is anethema to me.

So why not try a simple exercise to show just what you can do, with simple items, for example a scarf wound about a water jug (now use your imagination…) starting with a pencil illustration, then a crayon artwork, next a gouache painting and finish by painting your subjects as a watercolour artwork.  Limit the size to A4 and e-mail me your favourite with a brief description, and I shall feature the best five on a future blog.
