PAOTM – April 2021

The two suggested people to draw and paint this month were the legendary motorsports commentator Murray Walker and American civil rights activist and poet Maya Angelou.

Steve drew Murray Walker in charcoal on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper. What a great idea to include Murray’s headphones as this is how most people remember him.

Dot drew Maya Angelou in pencil and then added some inspirational words spoken by Maya herself. The words are so neatly drawn, well done. Dot also completed a picture of opening tree blossom, for the April subject ‘to open’.

Juliet drew both Murray and Maya in her usual impressive pencil sketch style. Their faces are instantly recognisable and their eyes the focus of attention as the pencil is used darker there.

Susan used her favourite medium, watercolours, for her portrait of Maya, beautifully capturing her glowing skin against the darker background.

Tracy drew Maya in HB pencil then added a few words and the rainbow in coloured pencils.
