64 - GEOMETRIC DANCER - DAVE EDWARDS - INK - 1983 by 


While I am busy with another painting I thought I’d upload an old drawing I did back in 1983. It is based on a photo of one of my favourite singers – Joan Armatrading.

I used ink and compasses, so this is a very mechanical sort of drawing :)

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Nice pic Dave :0) um……who is Joan Armatrading and what is your favorite song…..is she famous or local talent?

  • Joan was born in the West Indies and brought up in Britain. Since 1972, she has released 19 albums. In Australia she was given the keys to Sydney and our Queen gave her the MBE. Her 2007 album Into the Blues, debuted at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Blues Chart, making Armatrading the first UK female artist, and the first artist born in St Kitts, to earn that distinction. Admittedly she hasn’t made it so big in America as she has elsewhere in the world. I have about seven of her albums myself, including her first one. Go on YouTube and give her a listen – she’s brilliant!!!

    Here she is:

  • Thanks. If you’ve not heard Joan Armatrading sing I suggest a visit to YouTube – she is mega cool … and she’s no youngster either – only six months younger than I am.

    You can see right into her soul Dave! You must have had great eyesight and steady hands for this one. Well done!

  • Thanks. I knew someone would mention steady hands. I did say in the description that I used a compass :) No way could I draw circles that well without one.
