Art for tonight - Overture

It's only a pencil sketch. How many times have I heard that? Well, maybe we can agree that it is a drawing. Anyway, this is a drawing called Overture. It's part of a series I started awhile back wherein I was doing drawings based on musical forms and such. No one got it, as evidenced by the fact that they are all still lining my walls here. You can see them at my eBay store. http://stores.ebay.com/Natalie-Schorr_W0QQsspagenameZMEQ3aFQ3aSTQQtZkm And yes, I was referring to the William Tell Overture when I drew this. It's graphite with colored pencil, and it's actually a fairly large piece, compared to most of my little people on the library books. Maybe I'll feature some of the others on another night.

i'm sorry, if anyone ever denigrates your masterpieces again, by calling them "just sketches," kindly punch them in the face and say "that was from tami!!!!!" your work is amazing, stunning, staggeringly beautiful, i wish i could buy it all!!!

Hi Natalie

your work just blows me away every time. Your taltent with a pencil is outstanding. I could be in your dream series: "I wish I could draw like that..."


Keep going. One day I'll be able to afford to add you to my own collection.

Excellent pencil work! I hope you post a lot more of your illustrations. "It's only a pencil sketch." Anyone that says that about your work needs a damned good smacking about.

This is odd, but for some reason it appears when I click on the image it takes me to a smaller version.

Natalie, you constantly amaze me!
Jealousy & other negative feelings might bring someone to call this "just a pencil sketch" - but we all know the truth. This is an amazing work of art!

I'm very grateful the subject put up with the long term inaccuracies of the archer to unable you to capture the moment in your
"sketch". I love it and William Tell did cross my mind when I scanned over the small ebay photos and enticed me to take a closer look. Thanks, you made a long night at work bareable. G
