(DO)artworx Daily!

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

would you do it?

*  What if I told you that this IS possible to achieve working only 5 minutes or less daily?

*  Do you have 5 minutes to become a more skillful artist?

I bet you do~

"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

gestural sketching!  

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

sketching daily.  
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!


"It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover, to your surprise, that you have rendered something in its true character." -Camille Pissarro
