In the past months I have spent a lot of time copying from photos and children’s books.  My favorite book illustrator is Helen Oxenbury.  I am learning a lot about line from her marvelous illustrations.

When I try to really draw, my drawings kind of fall apart. My confidence fails.  My drawing regresses.  

Even if I stick with my naive style, I still have to learn a lot more about drawing.


About crayonsencore

I am teaching myself how to do illustrations for the stories that I want to tell. I started blogging in 2004, using crayons. I then moved to colored pencils, and now am experimenting with watercolors.
