Ok, maybe not really. For fun, I’ve been looking at my old drawings and sketches. Lots of animals, but also things I made just for fun. Boredom can be highly productive indeed.
First I came across some of work as a kid, the earliest work I still own alas. I think a lot of my childhood drawings were lost when I moved house twice, a real shame as it probably was quite funny and interesting to see how it all ‘evolved’ over time. Anyway, the 2 horse sketches were drawn when I was 11. I can even remember where. My friend’s grandparents’s flat, she was from quite a creative family and her grandfather was an artist. He has painted some horses and we were on a visit, where we apparently got bored and ended up drawing.
Not the best drawings ever, but I do remember the circumstances quite fondly. Her grandfather also brought us along to visit some old rich merchant’s house that was turned into a museum. Something I actually quite enjoyed.
Next are the numerous sketches I had to make in my year of Fine Arts, we were sent to the zoo, a highly enjoyable assignment I must say. However this also meant some animals aren’t exactly the most willing models ever.
As you can see, some were more than cooperative, while a whole bunch were lots of fun to watch, but not so great when you’re trying to do a quick sketch. Snoozing animals are simply the best. Especially when they’re big and dangerous. Luckily the following dog wasn’t, but he was an good model, even if by accident.
Now just some animals I’ve drawn just for fun.
After so many animals, I think we need something different for a change.
I think this is enough sketchy business for today.
For 2 other drawings I made of horses, take a look at my older post https://slightlyout.wordpress.com/2012/11/14/boredom-strikes/
