“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
— Pablo Picasso.

I love this quote as this is how drawing makes me feel… a kind of rejuvenated self! Well last night I felt like drawing a flower and started… and then I turned my sketchbook upside down and my imagination just took over… the political situation between the USA and Iran must have influenced my hand as it is almost an apocalyptic scene with an innocent dog looking up. Hope that you enjoy it nearly as much I had fun doing it.

One of the best advice that I have received is from James Gurney where he suggests to anyone that wants to learn how to draw or paint. “…alternate between sketching from life as in “plein air” or urban sketching, working from the imagination & copying from the Masters”. Great advice from a dedicated artist.
