Learning To Draw

"You learn to draw by drawing." 
~ Mick Masle


Buck Jackson came over today for a 3 hr. drawing session.
We reviewed and executed several exercises from Betty Edwards' book,
 "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". We explored face vases, upside down drawing
and 2 minute gesture drawing with watercolor wash applied. I hope Buck posts
some of her drawings on the DE facebook group. She's a quick study and not afraid of practice.

"To gain confidence, constant practice is essential. Just as a musician needs to practice regularly to retain his touch, the artist needs to be constantly in touch with the medium." ~ R. Lovett
