During thirty years of teaching drawing, I have learned that the best way to introduce students to the thrill of drawing in 3-D is by first offering IMMEDIATE success. Immediate success ignites delight, enthusiasm, and MORE interest. More interest inspires more practice. More practice builds CONFIDENCE. And confidence perpetuates a student’s desire to learn even more.
Ever since I was ten years old, I’ve been obsessed with drawing trees.
Trees surround us, shelter us, warm us, oxgenate us, and provide abundantly for our lives.
