But can you really draw

It’s one of those things that every artist gets asked. Particularly if one works in a medium that is more “abstract”. Watercolors can be such as can most other if one works in the abstract. I don’t, normally I prefer to do landscapes and “items” found around but to which people seldom pay attention.
Doodling frees the mind; it brought no end of trouble as a kid. “Stop that, you’ll never amount to anything!”, forever sounded in the ears. They were right, by their standards, I didn’t.
To this day I’ll get someone asking can you really draw, you know something. What they mean is representational art which a camera does so much better. I did these for a clothing store ad; I keep them around as proof I guess.Ties 02Ties 01Commercial work 1980’s


About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
