he art of drawing is at the core of every effective figurative image, whether it’s a loose three-minute drawing, or a tight resolved three-week drawing. My pencil drawings were created out of inspiration, and not something I am making out of a career. Lately, this 'forgotten' gift has
awakened, and so every once in a while, I see myself grabbing drawing papers and pencils whenever Father Time allows me to. Although I try to push the limits of realism in a black and white medium, my gift doesn’t stretch out far like those whose drawings that possess more superior flair, and render believable, realistic skins and hair. I use technical skills that I’ve 'humbly' developed, to tell a story, or evoke an emotion, and portray, in my own way, in how light effects the appearance of textures that I use. The techniques I was referring to are the basic strokes, the blending motion by combining both charcoal and graphite pencil, which simply teaches me how to bump up contrast.
Great artists excelled because they dedicate hours, months, years to their craft. Drawing is a skill that takes a lifetime to perfect. Yet the wonderful thing about drawing is that you don’t have to be a Rembrandt to enjoy it. Simply putting pencil or pen to paper is a joy that everyone can experience.
pecial Note: None of the drawings on display on the DOLLERY are for sale, reproduced or altered in
any way. They are part of my private collection, unless otherwise, they are clearly labeled/stated as
commission work, or part of a limited edition that is intended for sale.
