More than once one of the six art instructors at NWSA would say ‘Draw from life, it’s the best teacher’, yep they where/are right.
Figure drawings are the thing people singles out for praise when they are look thought your sketchbook, ‘did you draw that, so talented’, nope that is just practice. So practice drawing hands and feet, draw strangers on the bus, and in bars (creepy). If you feel weird drawing strangers for free come to the figure drawing event. Alpharetta has a bimonthly figure drawing/painting event. Search FB for… ‘alpharetta figure drawing/painting group’. I will see you there.
Below are examples of the Paper53 fill tool, it’s my favorite tool on the Paper53 app. I use it and the pen tool, I posted examples of the pen tool this morning.
