I published a new time-lapse video to Youtube a few days ago. For this one, and for the next few portraits I draw, I’ve decided to recruit family members to serve as models.
Is it possible for you to learn how to draw at art college? In this post, we’ll discuss how art college may not be the right choice for beginners.
Wondering how long it will take for you to learn how to draw? Will it take 10,000 hours or is that only a myth? We’ll discuss in this post:
Do you struggle with self-doubt and the nagging fear that you’re drawing or painting incorrectly? This post is for you:
