I was going through some old things and found this. My Great-Grandfather did it back in 1934. It's now hanging on my wall.

 

I know it's not MY artwork, sorry, but it has inspired me to get back out my art supplies. So watch this space ;)

That's really beautiful :)

My granny had a book of Donegal fairy stories which were half enchanting and half terrifying. They had line drawings in that style so really lovely to see those.

If I could create any drawing half as good as that I would be really pleased with myself, great job!

Thanks guys. Not that I can take any of the credit lol

I'm sure I remember my Dad saying he did a series of these. I find it fascinating how certain talents are handed down through the generations. My Great-Grandfather I never I met, but I can see my own Father in his drawings and my Aunt to that matter. They both have a similar precision/delicate style to their drawings.

Just so I don't feel like a fraud posting something that isn't mine (I'm sure my GGF wouldn't have minded though) here's something I drew on my iPad a year or so ago.
