Download the reference photo for this week's DRAW WITH ME class here. Feel free to use the grid method if you'd like, otherwise you can choose freehand draw the succulent as well. For more information on setting up a grid on your paper, refer to this post here. I will be using sketch paper and several drawing pencils (2H, HB, 2B, 4B and 6B) along with a blending stump. For a list of helpful drawing supplies you can check out this post here. I look forward to seeing you Sunday, August 9 at 2PM MST!
Join me on Sunday for a live class on how to draw this beta fish using the grid method technique. You can learn more about the process and set up for the grid method here. For prepping your paper you will need at least a 4"x5" piece of paper divided into 1" squares or you can choose to enlarge the grid. For example I could use a piece of 8"x10" paper and divide my grid into 2" squares. Choose whichever you feel most comfortable with. If you can't print the image with the grid you can still reference it from your screen.
For this week's drawing class we will use this reference photo, you can download it HERE. All you'll need is a piece of drawing or sketch paper, pencils (at least an HB/#2) and an eraser. We will take a look at some strategies for sketching and drawing landscapes, including how to interpret different textures such as water, skies, trees and mountains.
Join me tomorrow at 2PM MST to learn how to draw birds! All you'll need are the reference photos from Unsplash (you can download them here or view them below), some paper and a pencil. Feel free to bring other drawing supplies along that you like to use, but they aren't required. We'll focus on drawing the basic shapes and contour lines of the birds and then work to add it detail. From there you'd be able to add value or color with the medium of your choice - graphite, colored pencil, paint, etc. If you have suggestions for future topics in our "Draw with Me" classes please let me know in the comments below!
