I enjoy art and photography and you can usually find me doodling or drawing on just about anything from napkins at restaurants to flaps on cardboard boxes.  I like all types of artwork but I suppose for one reason or another I'm partial to pencil drawing.  Just wondering if there may be other Casita owners with similar interest.  Lynn

Very nice!! I can't draw a stick figure but I certainly enjoy seeing the work of people who can!

Good stuff.

This is wierd, but the only way I can draw (well, really, copy from a picture)is by looking at it upside down. I learned how to do that by reading "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". I'm like Solo Matt...can't draw a straight line, nor can I compose from scratch, like you have done her. But turn the picture upside down, I can copy it.

Great work!  I wish I could draw like that.  The only way I can come close is by converting a photograph.

Very impressive!  An old Navy buddy of mine could draw like that.  He also did lots of pencil and fountain pen drawings.  He did one of his high school sweetheart using and ink pen.  It was done by making horizontal lines very close together and changing the shade of the ink by varying the pressure somehow as he went.  When he was done you could see the perfect image of her face. Like your drawings the detail was amazing.  He was also a musician and he took the military ID's from the band members and made posters for the band.  The images looked exactly like the photograph. Just out of curiosity.  Are you left handed?

It is definitely a gift and I thank you for sharing it with us.

Awesome!  Wish I had a quarter of your talent.  And Poetry, TX.  What better place for an artist to live? :)

SoloMatt, Meadowlark, John, Wally Z, & Jerry & Wanda. I'm glad you enjoyed the art SoloMatt. I think Meadowlark that every artist has some technique that works well for them. If turning your picture upside down works for you with good results, I say stick with it. Sometimes when I get frustrated I take advice from the book you mentioned and try to trick my brain (which isn't very hard to do these days) into drawing the negative instead of the positive. I believe John that everyone has some unique talent. After reading your "interest" it's clear that you have an overabundance of talent. I can only imagine the disastrous results if I tried to build a telescope. It's my pleasure to share the drawings Wally Z and I'm right handed. And Jerry & Wanda, I'm sure you're blessed with talent in other areas. We've lived in the small country community of Poetry, (maybe 300 people) for about 30 years. Thanks everyone for the compliments, Lynn

These are beautiful! I'm still at the stick figure phase so I greatly admire your talent.
