Drawings & Sketches by New England artist

Leonard Gerwick

I have made drawings & sketches all my life and have some that go back seven decades.  I work out  the design of all my paintings, assemblages and collages with drawing and it is the foundation of all my art.  Drawing underscores Abstracts, Assemblages and Still Lifes.

I draw extensively from the nude model and often use these drawings as inspiration and reference for Figure and Nude painting.  For large figure paintings I draw full size cartoons first on paper to compose the figure on the canvas.
