Girl Thoughts

"Girl thoughts"

I saw this sketch in a book, which attracted me so much, when I am sitting lazily. So I thought of drawing and the result is this one which satisfied me.


***Note from Kerry:
Chaithra,
It has a certain charm, I like it too.

On The Way Home

On The Way Home

I saw this sight when I was in the car. That woman was a traditional Javanese herbal seller, and the firewood on the boy's head symbolizes the difficult life they faced.

***Note from Kerry:

A Drawing Of Prague

A Drawing Of Prague

My boss visited Prague and she had taken some photos that she loved. She asked me if I could draw them for her. Here is one of them.

The technique I used is graphite and chalk.

My photo of the drawing isn't very good, I'm not much of a photographer.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Ana, I just love this drawing! It is very intriguing, and the detail is outstanding.

You have done a fantastic job, your boss must have been thrilled with this gift.

Friends Of the Wild

I drew this for my brother who has now passed away. He has always been a very strong believer in the Indian culture and beliefs.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Karen,
I feel sad that you lost your brother, I am sorry. He must have loved this drawing, it is excellent!

Edited 27 Sept 2010 Karen's own drawing has now been uploaded. Thanks Karen, for your understanding and for re-sending in your drawing. I am curious to know if your brother saw the unfinished drawing? We all appreciate art whether it's finished or not, so I really hope he got to see you were doing this for him. You've done a great job!

This is the original drawing by the original artist.

He's Alive--He's Alive!

He's Alive--He's Alive!

This is my graphite drawing of the actor Boris Karloff as "The Frankenstein Monster."---He was a very good actor and made a lot of movies but he was more recognized in his roles as Dr. frankenstein's monster and is mostly remembered for that.

Mr. Karloff passed away in 1969 at the age of 82.

Left Shoe

Left Shoe

Hi ADD family,

I couldn't think what I would like to draw, my mind was a blank. I looked around and I noticed my son's shoe by my drawing table. Within the next minute, I was drawing his left shoe.

I use hb + 6b pencil.

***Note from Kerry:
You certainly have a great talent for drawing, Sergio. This is so well done! Artists never run out of things to draw, all we have to do is look around.

Little Girl No 2

by Karen Welter
(Joshua, Texas)

Second Attempt

Second Attempt "Little Girl"

My first attempt of the Little Girl was not a very good one. Maybe this one is a little better. But I am still working at it.

Hopefully, the third one will be even better. Thank you Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
There is an improvement Karen and that's exciting, isn't it? You have more expression on the face.

As you progress, you'll learn ways to make facial features with certain techniques and not in definite lines. That's the secret and it's tricky to acquire that magic touch. Keep going!!

I've added the link to your first attempt so Marty (and everyone) can check your progress. Thank you Karen, for being appreciative towards Marty, he deserves continuous praise for his thoughtfulness.
