That’s Why I Don’t Paint People

Bob Ross was reputed to refuse to paint pictures of people.  For whatever reason…I don’t know.

I’ve looked back at my drawing and realized I do draw pictures of people but mostly their backs.  ?  What?  Why would I do such a thing.  I read somewhere a long time ago, that in corporate art, it’s considered distracting to see people in a work of art.  So, without realizing it,  think I incorporated this rule into my work.

In honor of Throwback Thursday, here are the pictures of backs of people, mostly from a good long time ago.

Just to prove the exceptions to the rule, here are people drawn forward.

In the meantime, I am working on a new drawing…but no people in it.
