Canadian Musicians – Diverse, Rich

Celebrating Canadian Musicians

Diverse and rich, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday this past summer.  This focus led me to explore many facets of Canada’s history.  As I journeyed through some of its histories I was reminded of the countless Canadian musicians that have laid a rich musical foundation for our society.  I love music – all types of music.   Celebrating some of these musicians through drawing seems like a good fit.

With a variety of subjects in mind and a goal set out, I have decided to explore the warmth and tone that tan paper can add to a drawing.  After purchasing a new Strathmore Toned Paper sketchbook and grabbing my charcoal pencils, I set out to sketch and learn more about the various artists that have enriched Canada. Three Canadian Artists portrait’s that I completed this summer include Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot, and Terri Clark.  Each of these musicians has helped shape Canada’s musical landscape.  I will post more information on each artist in the upcoming weeks.

 Canadian Musicians/Hand Lettering

Deciding that I should continue to develop my hand lettering skills, I plan on incorporating hand lettering with each portrait in upcoming posts.  As I continue drawing portraits of more Canadian Musicians, I will incorporate hand lettering. The hand lettering will give more information about each artist.  Although Canada is only 150 years old, it is wonderfully rich and a diverse musical country which should be celebrated.  I look forward to exploring more Canadian musicians as I grow and develop as an artist.
