"You either have or you haven't got, style"

       2 & 5 minute poses at 'Fashion Illustration Shoreditch'

Once upon a time, long time ago, I used to think that one developed ones own style by copying and learning other artist's styles. Learning from other artist's work is necessary, it gives depth and credibility but style is another matter. Everyone's work is derivative of someone else's, because afterall 'there is nothing new under the sun'. But how one uses a pencil or a paintbrush is something instinctive. I love Rembrandt's drawings but I don't sit there thinking "WWRD?"
