I am doing a drawing at a moment on an A3 peice of paper and I am completley stuck on background ideas ......i am not a very good drawer so keep it in mind that I can't do anything fancy!!! So anyone got any good ideas?????
I took a few photos just incase!!! Also sorry it won't let me upload the photo I copied it from!!
Note: the photographing really kills the picture!!!......so it is better in real life trust me!!
Sometimes you don't need a background at all! For example look at these horse portraits. (If you can't see that website, let me know; I can take a screen capture of the page to show you.) Some portrait artists even add a mute ("blurry"/not very detailed) background to help direct attention to the subject. After all, you don't want your viewers to be looking at the background and not the horse!
