Introduction

Artist Project. Pablo Picasso. Introduction. For my artist project I have chosen to draw and write about Pablo Picasso as his work is beautiful.

I also chose him as some of his work does not seem to be too involved for me to draw and he is a well known artist. The Life of Pablo Picasso. Picasso was baptised Pablo Diego Jos� Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Mar�a de los Remedios Cipriano de la Sant�sima Trinidad Clito, which were the names of his relatives and saints.

I like this sketch as it is simply drawn using the simplicity of a pencil and shading. I like this image because it is meant to be a camel, but it doesn't look anything like one. I like this picture as it seems to be very simple and easy to draw. Conclusion. From Picasso's work, I have learnt that art does not have to be realistic, nor does it always have to be of a certain caliber. It was difficult to copy some of his work, but most of it was quite easy as he does not draw with great technicality.
