I have recently retired after 40 years practice as a professional registered Architect, but I still have a hand in residential home design. As a much younger fellow, I use to free draw commissions for the public (pencil portraits), and draw professional architectural renderings for other Architects (who didn't have a talent for free drawing). Architectural renderings were an artistic presentation of how building designs would appear in 3D eg. with trees, cars and people etc. I was probably a more gifted artist than I was an Architect, but Architecture was the far better prospect of paying bills. I had won an art competition before the age of twenty, and was separately awarded a commendation from the Royal Melbourne Show for an art entry made whilst still at high school. Free art drawing was predominantly shelved during my professional years, but now primarily 'retired', I have resurrected my desire to create artwork with gusto. In the past, I have drawn and painted in a number of mediums such as pencil, charcoal, oils, oil and chalk pastel, water colour and gauche. Gauche and chalk pastel seem to be my favourite medium combination, but I'm not intimidated using any medium. I relish perspective and high definition detail, and find myself captivated, if not lost in the two dimentional micro world flowing from my brush or pen, onto the paper or canvas. High definition drawing is relatively rare in todays art world, but I absolutely love creating it, however tedious it can be sometimes to finalise a work.
