Let me tell you about the Vintage Gallery.
Step back in time and explore Running Duck Studios’ Vintage Life gallery, featuring unique hand-drawn ink drawings of people dressed in vintage clothing engaging in various activities from a bygone era. From horseback riding to enjoying a picnic in the park, each drawing captures the essence of a simpler time.
This gallery has an extensive collection of vintage-inspired artworks perfect for adding nostalgia to your home or office. Whether you’re a history buff or simply love the aesthetics of the past, these pieces will surely transport you to another era. I tried to capture the feeling and nostalgia from that era without creating stereotypes. To make this possible, I researched on the internet, looked at old magazines and talked to my mum to get inspiration.
It is a period in time I would not mind living in. I get drawn to the cars and household items they used to have. The Running Duck Studio gallery is a converted Millard caravan, not entirely from that period but still old enough to make it look unique. It does have a Holden EK boot as a seat. My drawing studio is “cluttered” with items like a fridge, desktop fans, and other nick-nacks from the Vintage area.
One of the standout pieces in this collection is “Swim Cap Divas“, which depicts two women lounging by the pool in retro swim caps and swimsuits. Imagine the old swim caps, bright colours and wild designs, unlike the streamlined cladded caps you see in pools nowadays. Similarly, “Ella, Tennis Whites” captures the elegance and grace of tennis in the 1920s, with a woman dressed in classic tennis attire.
Another unique artwork is “Vintage Beach Babes“, which showcases three women enjoying a day at the beach in vintage swimsuits and sunglasses. I tried to make the drawing as if it just happened, from the patterns on the swimsuits to the texture of the sand, which makes this piece truly special. The bold lines make this drawing an actual work of art, capturing what it must have been like on the beach in the “old days”. Although the drawing is in black and white, you can imagine the colours of the bathing suits to be everywhere.
“Vintage Flower” is another beautiful drawing that showcases a woman with a flower in her hair, evoking the essence of the flower power movement of the 1960s.
Lastly, “Freedom Dance” is a lively drawing that captures the joy and freedom of dancing. The dancers’ flowing lines and dynamic poses make this piece a must-have for anyone who loves vintage art and dance. This piece makes an excellent artwork for a dance school entrance. It sets the scene for joy and happiness and the things represented in dance.

If you follow Tawny Trails, you can explore the galleries like mine in person, allowing you to see the intricate details of the artworks up close. If you can’t find a piece you like either online or in my gallery, which is a vintage caravan we converted into a mobile gallery, we can talk about a commission. I do commissions, which generally take a week or so to do.
