Ideal Conditions

July 30, 2011

These are drawings of old master paintings that I did while visiting art museums. Every once in a while the stars will align to put the following conditions in place:

1) Carrie has enough patience to stand still for a while.

2) The museum allows drawing.

3) No guards around to hassle Carrie.

4) No curious onlookers around to hassle Carrie.

The result = a pretty decent drawing. Conte crayon on gray paper.


  1. Hey Carrie, Great work! I just stumbled upon this from FB, and have been laughing it up and enjoying your sketches. I’m impressed by your conte’ skills too. I never had much luck with those blunt ends. Your characters all seem to have their own personality! I don’t see any where to subscribe on here 😦 guess I’ll have to venture back periodically. Hope you are doing well 🙂

    • Hi Lara thanks for your kind words and thanks for stopping by!
