I've discovered that I can draw in November 2015 when I was 40 years old, so it's just my hobby to relax from work stress.

At first it was nothing but some sketches from the reference photos and then later on I've decided to draw more interesting things as my confidence level increased at what I'm doing but my guess is that I'm still years away from what I can achieve ;) So I'll keep on working on my drawings and will try new techniques and approaches. The fact that I have so many watches makes me draw even more so thank you all who came here to watch my art :)

One of the people who stumbled on my gallery suggested to open BuyMeACoffee account so at least I can get some gratitude from the art that I make. If you like my art, be my guest and buy me a coffee ;)

Quick sketch on Haleakal Maui
Went on a hike with my kids while we are on vacation and as we stopped to rest we decided to sketch things out :) This was about 2-3 minutes sketch of some scenery from the hike on the mountain.

Finally traveling back to Maui from Germany from a business trip and decided to draw this lovely tree which you can find at American Airlines lounge in terminal 3 if you ever fly through Heathrow airport.

Portrait for RedditGetsDrawn
Facebook || Instagram || Reddit || BuyMeACoffee

Still in Germany on a business trip and couldn't sleep in the early morning, so decided to draw something from RedditGetsDrawn. Chose this as my subject just to try something difficult ;) www.reddit.com/r/redditgetsdra…
It came out so-so but given that I slept only 4 hours I think it went alright :)

[UPDATE] Just decided to push it a little more on the eyes and proportions from the reference photo.

American Airlines lounge in Chicago

Sitting at the airport and decided to draw something and what I saw was some chairs in front of me...I didn’t have much time so just did a quick sketch of them and didn’t have an eraser ready either so it is what it is ;)

Thanks for the liking my work.  I read your history and you're really an inspiration!  I too started as a hobby and for relaxation.  I'm not at your level, but I'm going to get there!
