A couple months ago I was in between ideas with painting and did a few drawings to get the art itch out and to just draw again. I sometimes forget how much I used to draw before I started paintings, so it was nice to spend a few hours on these and just get into the details. Click on the pictures to see the details.

The images I drew from come from a book I bought in Colorado on the works of an American photographer named Wayne F. Miller. Photographs 1940-1958 show images of life, American and foreign, during war and postwar time.

There is sometime that seems more real and genuine back then. Something that seems more based in the world and the tangible. Or maybe its just the way Miller shot. He seems to have this ability to capture people and their thoughts in amazing exactness.

Im planning on doing a few more of these in the next few weeks.

Too good! Lots of realism, her ear, hair, age spots to name a few. The next picture the sway of her dress and its texture again to name a few. Lastly, the man's expression and clothes have so much detail. I am glad you got to get back to drawing - you are really good in both mediums.

the man at the end looks like a guy i could stick in my back pocket and refer to later for a great time.

the old woman is where i will be in a few years time. really i will be staring at the trees in some park bench letting my mind wander from the trees to the children to my life to the universe.

then one day years and year and years later hopefully some gifted artist will draw my moment and let it perpetuate the reflective nature many only get after life has left its wrinkles their skin.
