drawings

It is interesting that all children draw and are cabable of making astoundingly expressive artwork. Somewhere along the road most give it away telling themselves -“I can’t draw that well”. In primary school my drawings were always put on the wall - I suspect I was rewarded for being able to copy well and render things as they looked to the eye, while other kid’s artworks, which were far more creative and expressive were passed over as childish. Consequently I believed I must be good at it and kept drawing while my less encouraged classmates looked to other interests. I thank my 3rd year Design School drawing teacher Susan Skerman for liberating me from uptight and clever scratchings. She made us get down on the floor close to the model and work with big crayons on huge pieces of paper saying - “Draw that foot and fill up the whole sheet!” Suddenly we were drawing with the arm and the body instead of just the wrist.
