Draw a pig...or a goat...or donkey!

Stop over at the Online Workshop site and learn about my Gestural Drawing Classes.

These sessions are for all levels of drawing ability - or for people that want to start drawing but don't know how to begin.

Gestural drawing is a wonderful way to begin a drawing or painting project. It strips you down to an essential element - that essential line that makes up the core of the subject - and urges you to capture a deep natural action on paper in a simple, emotive, fluid, raw way. Sometimes a gestural is so fresh and raw it radiates much more than a preconceived, well drawn piece ever could.

These classes also aim to show you how powerful 'looking' is, and how it is is an active skill that we all need to practice, myself included.
