What do you think of this drawing? I think it's really good!

Depends on the age of the child.

Very Picaso.

I suppose it depends on age. If they're 19 and at St Martin's College, I'm not going to lie to you...

Floggingmolly Wed 04-May-16 10:40:45

How old is the child? It's kind of relevant...

BathshebaDarkstone Wed 04-May-16 10:41:50

Depends on age. I'm guessing 8? 9?

How old is the child who drew it?

Owllady Wed 04-May-16 10:43:48

It reminds me of that woman in eastenders who is micks sister

Have they copied Picasso?

If the child is 3-6 and has been introduced to Picasso style pictures, it suggests they've taken it onboard.

Age 6+ and if their own back, its pretty average I'd say.

It doesn't really suggest an ability to draw from life/a study. Its very much 'person like shaped' rather than a study.

If your dc is 15 then not so much. 3? Then yes he is a genius.

Age of child? No one can say without it.

BoboBunnyH0p Wed 04-May-16 10:46:39

It depends on the age of the child, if they are 5 or 6 then it's pretty good but if their 8 or 9 it's average imo.

Owllady, oh yes, Tina Carter.

How old is the artist?

BastardGoDarkly Wed 04-May-16 10:50:51

I like it, but yeah, going to need to know the age!

Floggingmolly Wed 04-May-16 10:51:02

Why would you post something like this and not give the age of the artist? Maybe her husband did it...

U2HasTheEdge Wed 04-May-16 10:51:22

Well, it's better than I can do.

I kind of want to post my son's now. He did what I think is an amazing copy of a famous drawing. He is right this second having an interview to get onto an art course at college and I'm all nervous for him.

I can't draw to save my life, so the picture in the OP looks good to me, but how impressive it is does depends on the age.

My dd1 did a genius drawing when she was 2. It was of a king and really was very good.

4 years later I'm still waiting for the rest of her artistic talent to surface and slowly accepting that it may have been a fluke.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 04-May-16 10:54:56

Yes, going to agree that it's entirely age-dependent, and whether or not they were actually copying Picasso's style. My guess is that the child is about 8, in which case it's pretty average, IMO.

AssembleTheMinions Wed 04-May-16 10:55:01

Ooh, well I'd quite like to post my dds now as well blush

We do need to know how old your dc is though? Tis fairly important in this instance.

U2HasTheEdge Wed 04-May-16 10:55:05

My son never liked drawing, as a young child he used to just do stick men.

When he came home at the age of 15 with a drawing we were shocked! I had to ask the teacher if it was really his grin

Now it turns out that he is talented, although it's all quite dark looking work but I'm still shocked when I look at his work as he hid it for so long.

If they're 19 and at St Martin's College, I'm not going to lie to you...


AssembleTheMinions Wed 04-May-16 10:56:07

U2 you do yours first and then I'll go grin

U2HasTheEdge Wed 04-May-16 10:56:56

Ahh I'm going to post it!

It is a copy of a famous paint, my mum asked him to do it. He does his own designs and they are all in this style.
