A Drawing Gallery here on my website would be fun wouldn’t it! It’s time to share drawings and ideas from others – from you.
I’ve been posting some of my drawings, and will keep adding to it, but I want to make this a fun interactive page and add things from all of you.
Drawing Gallery Ideas
I’ve been posting some of my drawings, and will keep adding to it, but I want to make this a fun interactive page. I’d love to hear from you! I am calling this the Drawing Gallery, but I also want to fill it with your comments, drawing suggestions, tips on some techniques you enjoy, drawing books you like, other tools you use…you name it, if it helpful I’d like to share it. I’d love to add in some of your art. If you have a picture of something you have drawn and don’t mind sharing it, send it to me and I’ll put it in here. Hey, even those happy “mistakes” that were supposed to be something and didn’t really work out.
The First Drawing Gallery Entry
I’ll start by sharing some of my first tries. When my children were little I used to carry a little notepad for them to draw on when they got bored. I found myself drawing in it now and then. Those drawings weren’t necessarily “good” but they were fun. Then I got away from drawing for a while. About 2 years ago I decided to go back to drawing. I went to Barnes and Noble and browsed through their art section looking for a “how to draw” book that I thought was simple enough for me to understand, yet taught me good skills. I found what I consider a “gem”. It is by Mark Kistler. (I wrote a review of this book and how you can get it. Here’s the link: “You Can Draw in 30 Days”
Here’s what I started drawing on day 1 of his first lesson:
It was so much fun! It may seem like something simple and maybe even silly to you if you are an accomplished artist, but for me it was a huge step! I was so excited. I found myself drawing all the time. I admit that I didn’t complete the lessons in the book within 30 days, but that didn’t matter to me. I took more time playing around with the concepts I was learning. As I moved on through his book I drew every day. Here’s another one of my drawings from the lessons he teaches in the book:
And then there is this one:
Since then I’ve added new books, new techniques, new pencils and erasers, different paper, color, and many hours of fun!

I will be adding things to this drawing gallery now and then. Make sure you click on Drawing Gallery in the menu and see what else is there!
Now it’s your turn
Send me some comments. I’d love to share some techniques you have tried, or some drawing you have done. Maybe even some of those wonderful drawings that were supposed to be something and “failed”. Help us all have fun and also enhance our drawing skills.
I look forward to hearing from you!
