My sister Simone is having lots of fun at the moment experimenting in different mediums like charcoal, pastels, pencil and soluable pencil etc. Given this is her first time in using most of these materials I think they are amazing. I remember watching her draw when she was really young as she would draw in a 3 dimensional aspect naturally (I am 8 years older than her). Now that she is older and married, she lives in a mining town in central Queensland – as her husband works in mining. BUT she has 3 boys under the age of 5 and has been studying pshychology for years online at uni while looking after the kids. This year she has changed courses to studying art online. Is she completely insane or a ‘brainiac’?
For drawings of the elderly man, Simone used one of the images in ‘How to Draw the Human Figure’ by Victor Ambrus as a guide.
