* If you could do one FUN & SIMPLE excercise that would drastically improve your artwork overall
would you do it?

"I have learned that what I have not drawn, I have never really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle." -Frederick Franck
If you know me, you that I am CRAZY about
I believe it is the single most transformational
exercise any/every artist can do.
ONLY 30 seconds to 5 minutes daily!
(I'm not kidding!)
Gestural sketching helps you:
Identify the key elements quickly
Capture the essence of your subject
Find the feeling of the pose
See the subject/forms/object as a whole
Train your brain, eye and hand to work together
Avoid getting caught up in the details too soon!
Enjoy the act of drawing!
Everything has a gesture.
Trees & skies, people & animals, each possess expressive "body language" that when captured, will bring your work to life!
I'm passionate about daily drawing and painting because it is transformational!
I am using this platform to help me mentor artists who want to develop their skills of observation and become better draftsmen by committing to
Most artists know the value of daily sketching but few commit to it regularly. Many just need encouragement to get started. Once they see the amazing benefits for themselves they're hooked and their
art is taken to the next level!
