Part 1: Working from your imagination
A good drawing is the basis of all good paintings. Follow Trudy’s invaluable instruction as you learn how to compose simple subjects such as grass and branches through to more complicated subjects such as trees, a dog, the beauty of a horse and a house full of character.
Part 2: Working from life & photographs
Learn the difference between a still life and working from a photograph. Draw peculiar shaped vegetables found in nature and the beauty of a tumble down shed – reproducing the different tones and textures with pencil pressures.
