  1. These are really great. Quite the talented young artist, you’re learning to look at the world closely and work with what you see. Impressive.

    You should go see as many original old master drawings as you can, reproductions are ok so far as they go, but there’s nothing like seeing the drawings as created. Get your parents to take you across to Italy, if you love drawing then this in Turin is not to be missed, iconic!

    And if you can one of my personal favourites, La Scapigliata in the collection in Parma: photos never do it justice, you gave to see the original as they never capture the interplay of line and chalk, guarantee you’ll be awe-struck!
