On Top of the World

   This is one of my favorite works. It was one of those joy to draw things. The dress was so much fun. Loved the contrast between the lights and darks.  I continue to work toward mastering the pencils. My technique keeps sharpening as I go. I do comission work. This work took first place in the Fountain City Art Show in Knoxville, Tn. Then the work sold at the end of the show. My works are for sale. I do alot of life size drawings too.

About Brian Parker

My name is Brian Parker. I was born and raised in Knoxville Tennessee. I can remember having a real desire to want to draw all the way back to an early teenager. I was just always convinced I could never do it so, I didn't pursue it. In the early 90's I dabbled around with acrylics and actually done a few paintings. I just felt like something was missing. In 2005, I bought a sketch book and some basic drawing pencils. From there things really escalated. What seemed to be missing suddenly became very real. Not long after I purchased the good stuff and my passion has grown ever since. I love detail. I love the look of realism. Portraits are a favorite. I hope to show to people and share with them a passion that continues to grow. Thank you for looking.
