  1. Uh somehow I find these drawings creepy I don’t know.. Or maybe just the expectation of a man drawing a naked child? I know it’s art but creepy art 😄

    • Dear Lea, I’m sorry for my delay. I have been with singing practises. I’m a little disappointed with your opinion. I consulted the Thesaurus for find the right meaning of ‘creepy’ and I don’t agree with your way of thinking. But I’m thankful for your sincerity because this will allow to express my opinion. I was so much time practising studies of nudes, and I will not shut up now. Do you distrust when you go to the gynecologist and this is a man? Well, so the people who are sketching a naked model in a drawing room, are like a doctors of shapes, shadows, lights, and curves, and also specialists that during a session are concentrated on their work. When there is some break, then the model to get dress or get undress behind has a screen. Also you must to know that is so important for the skills in anatomy, to know how evolve the muscles and the body, from a child to an old person, don’t matter. Why more taboos. Will we be more puritanical than for example Rubens, a personage born on 16th century, whom here is showing a drawing? Must we practice censure for naked bodies? and revive the Entartete Kunst (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entartete_Kunst). Perhaps we must to censure violence. We allow all and more on TV or movies, and why art can’t be free.
      Oh Lea, I’m so grateful for your comment, and your following of this Universe of Drawing, but remember: THE PERVERSION IS ONLY IN OUR MIND.

      • Yes I don’t feel well if my gynecologist is a man but it was just my opinion and I also wanted to let you know what I think because you also do this on my posts. I understand you but we’ll just my thinking

      • Oh yes, I want to express my thankful to you, to giving your opinion, I only was clarifying some ideas that some people has because they don’t know about the matter, not only you. Without your comment I don’t had the possibility to write my words. You’re an important follower. Thanks for your loyalty. Good night and happy dreams!

      • Oh Carmen, what better time to time for the arriving of your comment. A true support. You have a wealth of empathy, and so expressed it in english, so it will be readed for all the followers they want to debate. This is truly a help, what we say in our language ‘echar un cable’. We will continue in touch. A million thanks and see you soon.

  2. i love the innocence of the van gogh

    • Oh Beth my friend! You captured the essence of this work by Vincent. This artist drew with rough lines, but he had a so tender heart. Thanks again for your observation, wisdom and sincerity with your comments. I only ask you read my reply to another follower for this post, for me is an important clarification, about censure. ❤

  3. It makes me smile, and feel a little sad the same time. Well chosen examples of children in art indeed, Johanna

  4. I only knew William Blake as a poet and I am very surprised to see this portrait of a child drawn by him. I am very happy to discover your sketches as well!

    • Hi Mihaela, I’m an ignorant about the the writings by Blake, but I know he was a so prolific draftsman, and worried about political, communal and social matters. I love him.

  5. These are wonderfully evocative images of children.

  6. wow the mystery in the ones without faces was really enticing, made me look at the picture again to try and understand, there’s so much in color, placement and type of strokes that carries so much meaning.
    thank you for making me really see the artist’s in the art.
    perfect post.

    • Oh my dear, so true. This colorful watercolor by Macke, is a collection of several shapes that its meaning could be any thing. Maybe is only of one step of the abstraction. You’re welcome and I’m pleased to give you a hand to watch together any work. Thanks a million for your visit, and thanks again for your wise and suitable comment. Best wishes!
