Thank you Cynthia, I started out drawing light lines of boxes measurements , over the reference photo . Then made large boxes measurements on the large paper, then I started to draw and keep for example, if the one box had his shoulder and part of his arm, I would stay with those measurements ,,it sure helped with the full composition . I hope you can understand what I mean. All the best, Sincerely, Doris

Artist Statement
for Doris Billing
Doris BillingI find myself, now in the early autumn of my life,,, re-visiting my passion, for art,,in all of it's many forms. As of April 2015,,I have been a member of Wellington Artist's Gallery,for a fifth season.,and as of 2016 the Gallery is closed,as result of the owner Beryl Dawson passing away. I miss her so much, she will be missed by many. In 2015 I was in the Hills Erin Studio Tour, thoroughly enjoyed, as I received several commissions. Also I'm an exhibiting member of Headwaters , Caledon.(Alton Ontario) ,.My theme for life. "You are no better than anyone else, but no one is better than you. Respect others as you would like to be respected.Be a good listener, and be giving of wisdom and Love.Do not wish your Life away, Seize the Day...
