Hello Followers! My apologies for getting so behind in blogging. I’ve been meaning for weeks to write this blog post, but it kept getting shoved around on my schedule. So now–I won’t do it justice, I’ll just get it out there!!!
Lately, whenever I can find time, I’ve been drawing portraits, if you didn’t know. I’ve been drawing people I know, and I love it, but my problem, which has always been my problem, is that I cannot draw a portrait without a picture. And having a reference is (haha!) not my thing! It gets boring.
So I’m taking a Portrait Drawing Course! I’m super excited to be doing it. All online, with videos, with pencil and simple supplies. Ethan starts with the very beginning and works up to a full, detailed, shaded, and realistic portrait, and besides the initial video course, he is full of tips on his site.
And because it is a real person telling you how to draw, for this gal, it is much nicer, easier, smoother than reading it on paper.
Since you never really know how good an art course will really be, the course is risk free. It is also a work-at-your-own pace course, which is critical! to me right now. =) You can find the course on the site linked above, as well as his figure drawing course, which is actually what first drew me to the site.
I’ve super enjoyed it so far! Just ask me if you have any doubts.
Tell me if you have questions about it or email them, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ll be posting my drawings that I get and my progress on the course as I go. I’ll be going as fast as my hectic schedule will allow.
