It was a picture that I had taken in the local park's ice cream kiosk on one of the Sundays last month.This group of four boys huddled together near the stall, deciding which ice creams to buy- they looked so cute, I immediately knew it would make a great painting....but since the kiosk was under a shade , painting this scene in watercolors did not look promising...so I compromised on a drawing.
I have not been doing much pencil work lately - prime reason being the issue of 'creativity'.Is creating a sketch from a reference photo can be called "art"? I can't decide.When I looks at the works of some really good pencil artists, it does excite! But I do get disheartened when people say 'well ..its good, but its not original art '!
Well I am doing it because I love doing it - is that reason enough? :)
