If we've learned anything from Joyce Hicks' videos, it's that we have the freedom to turn a reference photo into a vibrant painting. Inspired by her fantastic scenes, this week we're practicing sketching cottages and other small houses. All it takes is grabbing a pencil, any quality paper, and hitting play on the video. Get your sketching practice every day and you'll be amazed at how quickly your drawing skills improve.
Please note: The video does not include audio. Think of it as a reference photo slideshow: Five reference photos will be on the screen each for 3-minutes each. Ready, set, sketch!
Learning to draw takes daily practice. Start by taking 15-minutes a day to draw. Each week we'll post a new sketching video. Each video has 5 reference photos based on a theme. Each image is up on the screen for 3 minutes. If you want to spend more time with an image, see the direct links below for the copyright free images.
Check out the larger versions of the images from the video. Follow the link to find out more about the photographers who shared them:
Comments will be approved before showing up.
Each issue includes drawing inspiration and an artist interview, plus a sneak peek at new titles that will help you learn to draw and paint!
