A Photo a Week Challenge – The Devil is in the Details

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo A Week Challenge

At the beginning of the summer I went to the ROM and took in a show called Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion. This wonderful designer creates fashion that is a form of art that is closely related to her and her body. Her garments combine the often friction-filled world of technology and nature. She pushes the limits of haute couture.

Word of the Day Challenge – Patterns

….the word for Word of the Day Challenge is patterns

Patterns are everywhere. Some are man-made and others occur naturally in nature.

Portraits of Two Fine Gentlemen

…..days 136 and 137 of 365 Days of Art

Yesterday I posted some portraits of older men that I found photos of on the internet. Two of my followers, Ivor and Derrick, made some nice comments about my work so I decided to try and draw them. I hope they won’t be offended at my attempts.

I found a photo on Ivor’s site Ivor.Plumber/Poet which I attempted to draw. The glasses were a bit tricky because there was a glare on them and I drew them slightly off kilter.fullsizeoutput_7064

Derrick’s photo came from his profile picture. Sorry Jackie I left you out of the drawing. Check out the countryside where Derrick lives.
