All work above by David Hockney 


David Hockney is an English artist that has created a wide array of art in his lifetime.  In 2011 he was voted the most influential British artist of all time. 

What I love the most about his work is the way he braids together simplicity and intricacy.  

 You can check out more of his work on his site here.  

For this exercise I wanted to take the style of David Hockney and create drawings of my own.  

I worked in graphite pencil, colored pencil, and inktense water soluble pencils. 

I also used Jolly X-BIG Pencils, which are really nice colored pencils for the price.  I worked on regular drawing paper - 11" x 14". 

I'm always excited by the unlikely, never by ordinary things. - David Hockney



Here are two pieces I did for this lesson, unfortunately they didn't make it to vimeo due to my hard drive failing.
