My first drawings

I have wanted to be able to draw for a long time.  I used to scribble and try to sketch things, but they didn’t look ‘right’.  This page shows the progression of my drawings through the years which I felt good enough to keep. I have tried to post all drawings in order time wise.  To view the drawings in greater detail, click to enlarge.

Sometime in the 90’s I did this drawing, looking out of the window.  (Drawings will be posted later)

In the summer of 2009 I purchased a book “Drawing Basics” by Jacklyn St.Aubyn.  I began making outline drawings in pen.  Although I never completed the book, I learned a lot.  I was beginning to see what I wanted to draw.  I progressed from outline drawing to drawing more texture.  These are the drawings I still have from that time.

Then other things took precedence.  In the summer of 2012 I begin taking one-on-one lessons with art teacher Cristy Crites.  These are the drawings I did while taking lessons.
