That’s cool. I’m hoping to bring to attention the creatures we have in our waters closer to home- so living on the North Sea coast that’s my focus.
It’s a good idea.
Your drawings remind me of a few that I purchased when travelling in SE Asia. One is my absolute favourite, it’s a bit larger than A2 and is of a leopard done in charcoal.
It’s all B&W- all done with the same piece of charcoal apart from the eyes which are a subtle colour.
I bought it in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. I stumbled across a young man drawing it just after he started- he was using a thumbnail size image he’d taken from a National Geographic magazine. He worked full time during the week then every night went to the night market to continue his drawings. I watched him draw it for a couple of nights and was just amazed- there was no outlines nothing- just total freehand. So I asked if I could buy it. I watched him add more to it every night- and after 2 weeks he was finished. He wouldn’t accept more than £40 for it. It takes pride of place in my living room and I still sit and look at it- I’ve had it for 10 years now and it still amazes me! People see it and assume it’s a photo! It’s in a glass frame- I’ll try and take a photo of it though there may be a fair bit of reflection.
But while it totally amazes me that people can draw like that I also felt so guilty only paying £40- though I think to him that was a fair bit to be honest. But over here it would have cost me so much more! Mind you- to me now it’s totally priceless so I guess that’s art for you!
