Drawn Paintings

Turning famous paintings into drawings started as an exercise to develop my drawing skills but quickly turned into a very satisfying means of artistic expression. I don't consider these to be copies any more than a still-life is a copy of the objects being depicted. In this case, it just happens to be master paintings which serve as the beautiful and inspiring subjects of my drawings.


Anne of Cleves

Anne of Cleves

With her magnificent jewel-laden clothing, Hans Holbein the Younger created a weighty painting appropriate for such an exalted subject. Not being bound by the constraints of a royal portraitist, I was free to turn the solemn queen into a floating angel.


Danse de Paysans

Danse de Paysans

Isolating the figures in this work of Peter Paul Rubens emphasizes the magnificent baroque twists and turns of its complex design.


Madonna and Child

Madonna and Child

This drawing brings out the wonderful lines and beautiful expressions created by Botticelli.
