These three sketches are one inch sections from an Andrew Wyeth painting enlarged to ten inches. They are representative of my drawing capabilities and skill at depicting visual drama using black and white media. The sketches capture the energy of Wyeth’s art and subject matter.
Details from Wyeth’s Painting
American realist painter Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) painted Sycamore Tree and Hunter during the fall of 1943. His work was controversial because it conflicted with 20th century abstract art trends.
Considered the painter of the people due to his sympathetic depiction of the daily struggles of life, Wyeth held his first one-man show at the age of 20. His art, with its realistic renditions of modern life portrayed with a subdued palette, features in many magazines, calendar, posters and murals.
