Hearts and Tears

by Rachel
(Cairo, Egypt)


Dear Friends,
My drawing 'Hearts and Tears' was inspired by someone I know that is going through a bit of trouble.
I drew a heart and extended its curls and swirls to show a heart that is trying to reach out for help.
I am always experimenting with different mediums in my artwork and my 'Hearts and Tears' was coloured with my palette of eyeshadows! I found using my powered eyeshadows a very fast way to apply colour to my drawings.
Although you cannot see it in this photo, my eyeshadow has sparkley bits and so the original sparkles and smells nice too!!
I hope you enjoy my artwork. I enjoy visiting your excellent website and discovering others artwork too.
Best wishes to everyone.
Rachel

Note from Kerry:
Hi Rachel
I loved viewing your drawing, it really adds a whole other dimension when the artist explains what is portrayed. I'm so pleased you mentioned that the original has sparkles because I visualized it in its full splendor that way.
I am sure your drawing brought a smile to your friend's face, it is a lovely gesture by you.

Peace, Love and Happiness

by Nicki
(United States)


It actually started out as me attempting to draw a bird, i was drawing some fluff on it's stomach and i accidentally drew a line up its neck. I thought it looked neat and made it into a swirl, continuing this pattern i realized that it didn't look very good on the bird.

I was thinking of a symbol it wold look good on and came up with a peace sign! The rest kind of just came to me while I was drawing. Now I know that it is not the best cause I didn't spend a huge amount of time on it but I think it's worth posting!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Nicki, I loved hearing the story of how your drawing evolved, I find it so very interesting. It's like being privy to your thought process! I enjoyed looking at your drawing so you did the right thing by sharing it. It's great!

Fantastic
by: Sue from Tennessee

Nikki, I can't get this drawing out of my head. I really think you ought to copyright it or something so someone else won't steal it and put it on a t shirt. It would make a fantastic t shirt and YOU should get the credit for it. Keep it up and show us more.

Multi layer drawing

by Viswanath V Rao
(Pune INDIA)


How about reuse an old clock? and doing a 3 layer drawing?

I did this painting on such a canvas; The glass acts as 2 layers, drawn on both sides while the clock frame acts as 3rd layer background;

This technique, to draw on inner side of the glass is called reverse glass painting; In this technique, in case a reference is required, you need the "mirror image" of the original drawing which to be kept under the glass to replicate.

The front side of the glass contain only the ornaments (2 on the hand, 2 on legs); the back side of the glass is the actual drawing, a dancing statue; while the clock frame (painted green and white) is the background 3rd layer;

The image drawn is "The Natarajar", the powerful Hindu GOD. Refer -
Shiva Lingam
which is a iconic representation of the God. This dancing pose is very famous in South INDIA. At a temple in Chidambaram, is dedicated for the God in this pose.


artist
Note from Kerry:
Wow Viswanath! This is a great piece of artwork and your detailed story is absolutely wonderful, thank you!

I think your family will be very proud of you and your creations, they all tell such a marvelous story and they look fabulous! You are very interesting.

Celestial Abstract

Celestial Abstract

Celestial Abstract

I didn't know what to name this but after I stared at it for a while I thought it looked like planets and comets etc. Especially with the black background.

I drew this with colored charcoal on black paper. I actually drew this before the Robert Plant portrait on black but hesitated uploading it.

Kerry, am I uploading my abstracts to the right site area?? Please feel free to move it where it's suppose to be...I think I uploaded both to the color drawing area. Is this correct?
Your friend,
Cindy


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Cindy,
If your artwork is in color then you're definitely in the right place. Please don't worry about whether you've put it in the right category, this is a very casual space and I don't mind if I have to move things sometimes.

I thought your title fitted the piece perfectly! I think titles make a difference to viewing artwork and it's great to see you've put some thought into it.

As I gaze at your piece, immediately I have the sensation of floating so I love it! Great job Cindy!

Creative
by: Michael

I like this drawing. Your husband is correct, in many circumstances, less is more. Especially in drawings. It took me forever to learn to try and not be quiet SO detailed in my drawings. I used to add so much detail that the picture would get lost in lines......so I had to learn to scale back a bit and my drawings started to look better and more realistic. You accomplish a lot with inference in drawings. Very nice work you did, very creative and trying new things.....very nice!

Green
by: Marty

Hello Nasima:

Well I tell you one thing you make me Green with Envy.

Why? Well because I never thought about doing what you just did.

And you just gave me a great idea and I Thank You for that.

I like the way you did it as the Green doesn't overtake anything and it is as you say, a study and that my friend is what I love to do is study the artwork that the artist post here.

I wonder what this drawing would look like in Red as like a Red Sunset?

The Eiffel Splatter

by Briana
(Virginia)


I did this one in art class when I was really sleepy, and didn't pay attention when the teacher explained "abstract." (yikes) So when she told us to paint an abstract piece, I looked at what the girl beside me was doing.

She was painting stick people. I asked her what she was doing, and she said we were supposed to be doing child like drawings.

My little brother is 4 likes to play with paint and he does stick drawings, then splatters the paper (and himself, lol) with paint. This is how i think a 4 yr old might interpret the Eiffel Tower.

I had planned to give whatever i made that day to my Grandma and my Nana.They live in FL and they were to visit us in a couple of weeks. They have been to France 4 times now, and they speak French fluently. So this is what I did. She loved it BTW.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Briana
It's a great abstract! You're very creative even when you're not paying attention, lol.

The one flower I see is on the left and to the top of your tower.

Uh Oh.....
by: Michael Betz

Oh Brianna, please...never say that you don't think you will ever be good enough to be famous. You just never know what lies ahead......I bet J.K. Rowling never thought she would be famous either....and look at her now. If you keep your dreams alive and you persue those dreams with a vengeance....you just never know what could happen...and sometimes, how surprisingly quick they can happen.

Abstract
by: Michael Betz

Hello again Brianna. I am so glad to see you participating in this great site. As for abstract, I myself am not a fan of abstract art. I am not a Picasso fan. But, from what I see, this is a great abstract pice. I would have known it was the Eiffel Tower even if you had not mentioned it. If you like abstract, keep doing it, you did just great!

Collage

I was at art camp and didn't have much to do so I just asked my friend what I should draw, and then I drew it. (of course I had to deny some things)

Afterwards I had made a "collage" of pictures that I have decided to now post. Unfortunately the color came out horrible on the scanner, Sorry!!! Hope you enjoy it anyways.

My daughter Claire has asked me so many times if I would do a drawing for her home. I drew this for her birthday, and it's lovely that it's framed and in her home on the wall.

Hi Yvonne, it is stunning! Is this a drawing and not a painting? If so, the amount of work you put into this is awesome. I'm sure Claire would be very pleased with your gift.

Blue Ink Drawing

Well Hello Everyone Again;

Well gang this is my last one today and I used a blue ink pen again.

Now see if you can figure this out. If you think you got it figured out then please let me know.

Now I know I am having a lot of problems drawing today but I wanted to upload this anyway and see if anyone could figure this out and then draw us a better one for I have seen some great professional drawings on Kerry's website.

HINT. Once printed out turn it upside down and then see if you can draw it.

With My Warmest Of Regards.
Marty!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, at first I thought it was a sketch of an older lady having a really bad day! However, after looking at it upside down, I can see your princess. This is so clever.

I'm not sure I'll get time to draw it, I'll have to wait and see how I go.

Everyone is welcome to print it out, that's no problem.

For this creation, I just used newspapers as canvas ... rolled on the 4 sides; painted acrylic black; then I stuck 5 CDs in the center, and did the simple designs with paint.

And there you go ... another piece of art (?) from waste materials.

Firey Skull

by rachel


Hi everyone,
This is kind of bad but it's the only thing I've done so...
I liked the idea of it but I'm not so good at painting and it turned out like this.

I did it in around an hour last night, the advantage of not being able to sleep :)

This is the first thing that hasn't ended up in the bin for a while, I have no ideas and when I do it doesn't turn out right. I hope you like it and please tell me how to improve. Thank you


***Note from Kerry:
Hey Rachel!
It's quite clever actually. I really love the scrolling down the side. I also like the crack at the top. Do you mind if I ask what type of paint you used? The detail you have included would be fairly hard to do with any type of paint I'd think. You've done a good job, little one.
