Original Drawing Ideas
by Steven Chesley




Welcome to Steven Chesley’s original drawings gallery. The most interesting thing that caught my attention was the nature of some of his drawings, a kind of a blend of naïve art and (post) impressionism.

It’s a pity the pictures are little small, but Steven’s drawing concept is really cool. The best thing in naïve art is that you do not need to worry much about the exactness of the painted object. However, the artist should have a good command of drawing figures, shapes and great sense for proper balance and proportions.

The Raven’s head does not really belong to Naïve Art category, but it looks like perfectly suitable as an illustration for a scary poster. Great work!

Notice the trees on the “Valley” drawing. They have shade! Shade automatically creates an impression of three dimensionality. Another great oddity on naïve-like art is that it almost never contains classical perspective drawing.

I like Steven’s cool idea of drawing shades behind trees.

When I see the drawing of “Day at the beach” it instantly reminds me of a beautiful day hanging out on a beach and playing with the kids.

Witches castle idea looks quite scary too with the infuriated-scared cat on the opposite side of the pavement. The cat on the picture adds a great value to the total spookiness of this scenery. This is a very tiny but very important detail. Steven Chesley's great idea.

It seems as if you absolutely must pass through the witches’ zone to reach the castle entrance. But probably only a few brave ones can pass through this challenge zone.

Bake sale drawing seeing from above reminds me of a winter scenery. Overall very nice idea of people walking towards the church for a bake sale.

“Man O War” drawing looks a little bit like some spooky (as well) hat of a dead pirate, whose wandering soul used to re-appear somewhere in the middle of nowhere on a lost island…

Enjoy Steven Chesley’s Drawings



The Raven


Just felt like drawing and this is what I ended up with. A black pen and a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11" photo copy paper can turn into anything I guess.

Man O War


Just felt like drawing something from the sea. After I finished my drawing I felt that it needed some color to show more detail, so I grabbed my paints and this is how it turned out.
