348 - THE GNOME - DAVE EDWARDS - COLOURED PENCILS - 2012 by 


FEATURED BY THE ART AND STORIES MADE FOR CHILDREN GROUP – 14th July 2012

FEATURED BY DECORATIVE & TRADITIONAL ART GROUP – 18th July 2012*

I’ve gone back to my old style for this one. I was walking through a garden centre and couldn’t resist taking a photo of one of their garden gnomes. I used it as inspiration for this drawing. I used coloured pencils and fineliners. Here’s a cute little rhyme by my friend Walt (Madvlad):

Be ever so humble, there no place like gnome,
its better yet, when it comes out of Dave’s dome.

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.

    I adore gnomes…garden memories from my childhood in England!

  • Thanks Heather. Maybe I should let my beard grow longer and then I’d be extra popular :-)

    Hehehe; that it is cute; and I love madvlad’s rhme to go with it :)

    This is no doubt distinctive of your old style but also reminds me a bit of madvlad’s garden pics and his colourful line drawings.

  • Yes, Walt and I both do colourful work. That’s how we got to know each other I suppose. I knew him before Redbubble.

    Very cute Dave! He looks very serious.

  • Oh, but he is, Alexandra. He has many responsibilities and worries, what with all those naughty little elves he needs to control and the mischievous pixies that tease him by pulling his beard :-) Thanks for your nice comment.
