"Ernest Watson Study 1"

Started with my tiny drawing yesterday, I have been possessed by my pencils. This one is a copy from the  book "The Art of Pencil Drawing" by Ernest W. Watson. I really like the way he illustrated the cityscapes. I am learning his value design, and the abstract patterns he used in rendering. In the near future I want to paint from photos, but I am not good to organize information from the photo. So learning by copying others work is an effective way for me.

It's a wonderful study of Watson's work. I like pencil sketches and Watson is one of my favorites as well. Just as you are one of my favorite painters.

I love this.
You are so right about copying to learn. I always say I'm going to do it then I don't.
