Art Lessons and a New Look!

My blog has a new look!  There is also a new tab above that says Art Lessons!  I hope this will make it easier for you to find my art lessons.  Just click on that tab for the complete lesson list!

Good drawing skills are fundamental to painting. A drawing can be a finished piece of art or it can be used as a guide to paint by. Anyone can learn to draw and paint if they can learn to see the basic elements of design in the world around them. I’ll teach you, step-by-step, the elements of drawing and watercolor painting, gradually adding more complex and challenging skills.

Here is the very first lesson I did in 2008:

The most important ability you need in order to draw is learning to observe. This first lesson will make you aware of lines. Take a look of this page of lines (straight, curved, short, long). Use your imagination to guess what these 8 items are. Finish the drawings on your own sheet of paper. The correct answers will be in lesson #2. Some of them might surprise you!
