ever on the search for cheap original art that doesn't make my butt bleed, i stumbled across these drawings on anthropologie a few days ago...
they are copied from a 19th century sketchbook and
they remind me of my favorite hugo guinness art:
except i like the flowers better.
but sadly those fuckers cost 498.00 EACH!!
so i went to sam flax
got some ivory paper and a caligraphy pen.
then i went home and drew that shit on some scrap paper.
just to see if i could:
violas close up:
tulips close up:
so i nervously penciled out the scale on the good paper..
then free handed it with my caligraphy pen ($2.49) and BAM!
now to hang or to prop?
