  • Put Them All Together They Spell Still Life

    Put Them All Together They Spell Still Life

    Yesterday and the day before, I posted instructional videos on sketching, blending, and shading.

Others just “wanna have fun” and watch some entertaining drawing. So in this post, I’ve got a video for each group. The first video is a lesson in drawing still life.
