ARTIST: NORMAN DARVIE
MEDIUM: PAINTING, DRAWING/ILLUSTRATION, SCULPTURE
About the Artist: I have been painting since childhood and am self taught, working in oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, penned ink and graphite. Crafting model airplanes and boats was also a favorite pastime. At retirement I started sculpting as I was attending courses at the Art Students League in the City where I am a lifetime member and elected member of The American Artists Professional League. I concentrated on learning the structure of the human anatomy, particularly in ecorche, anatomy drawing and stone carving focusing on the human figure in motion. I carve in stone and model in clay and wax. Several of my pieces are bronzed.
