Artwork done by Storm West

These are just a few selections to show my drawing skills and understanding of shading and composition. I’ve never attended an art school or learnt how to draw formerly. I loved to draw since I was a young child and my skills improved 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 redrawn it in A1 size with graphite pencil.

Horse Oil Painting

I was inspired by Tony Stomberg’s book called Spirit Horses. These are one of the horses from that book and I did my first painting in oils.
