Ars Gratia Artis

"Ars Gratia Artis" is a Latin phrase meaning "Art for the sake of art." Art is enjoyable and I find it a salubrious way to relax my mind and ultimately help me concentrate on other things, such as homework, more easily. Today I was just randomly searching the internet and found the artist, Kim Kincaid. She is interesting because she is both a superb artist and a modern book reader. She sketches a wide variety of subjects but is especially proficient at rendering the human complexion.

Yeah they realy inspire me to draw more often. The program thing she does SAD (Sketch A Day) is a good idea. I'm going to try to do it over the summer.

Her drawings look more like photographs they are so intense and perfect and detailed.
