Artwork done by Storm West

Below is a small selection of my art to show my drawing skills and my understanding of shading and composition. Although I’ve never attended an art school or formally been taught how to draw, my life-long love for drawing and my passion to develop my skills has helped me learn and grow over the years.

Elephant Sketch

This is from a photo I took of an elephant at our local zoo. It’s drawn in graphite and carbon pencil.

Hand Pulling Down Stockings

The original image came out of a very old fashion magazine. I can’t even remember what it was about, but I loved the hand and redrew it in A1 size with a graphite pencil.

Horse Oil Painting

I was inspired by Tony Stomberg’s book called Spirit Horses. This is one of the horse images from that book that I used to complete my first-ever painting in oils.
