Naive figure drawing






I keep a memory sketchbook of what happens on my daily walks. I often do little naive drawings of people and thought I needed to learn how to draw them properly. Then I realised I love the naive quality and look forward to seeing more of them in my walking journal. Thought I'd share them as they will remind some of the professional figure drawers where they possibly started!!!
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

Very fun! I like the simple line work and the splashes of color bring them to life.

Susan, they are very beautiful and you know why? because they are made from the heart. The main objective of a drawing is to tell a story, to show some feeling or to wake up some feeling in the viewer, and these "naive" figures really do it. Keep doing them!!! Greetings.

Susan, what can I say that everyone else hasn't. These are so charming! You've caught the motion of them doing their activities and the line work with the splashes of color says it all. And what an accomplishment to do them from memory! Keep it up!
