Course - Complete Drawing Course for Beginners Part 4 with Ronald Swanwick

Ronald Swanwick’s Complete Drawing Course for Beginners is a series of four excellent videos guaranteed to teach you everything you need to know about drawing all within the comfort of your own home!
This course will help you learn all about perspective and how to draw three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface plus the principles of eye level and vanishing points enabling you to draw streets and objects with ease. Discover the basics of planning & proportion and how to set up the framework of your picture, using your pencil as a measuring tool. You’ll then look at the composition, where you will learn how to position your focal point on the page and how to observe and draw people. Teaching you the rules of tone and texture, Ronald demonstrates how to draw highlights within a glass, buildings which ooze character and a realistic looking otter bathing comfortably by the bank of a river.
