Day 17 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
My contribution to the world is my ability to draw... Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world.
It lives through magic.
Keith Haring

Studies of birds, graphite on paper, by Marj Leggitt. It's always wonderful to see a sure hand in action. There are no wasted strokes here, but there are over 16 birds illustrated on this sheet. The drawings are made with a confident, committed line, and that is the result of constant, committed drawing. Perhaps even, a drawing a day?

Want to take a look at some contemporary artists who exhibit online? Click HERE to take a tour of a large number of artists who find the drawing is their end-all be-all.
