First lesson

At the last minute, I signed up for Danny Gregory’s Sketchbook Skool.  I worked through the first week’s video lessons yesterday.  This small sketch was inspired by Danny’s sharing of one of his early sketchbook journals.  The presentations were very thoughtful and encouraging.  I like it already.

Yes, it costs some money.  That was why I was reluctant at first though I can afford it.  Already I find it is good value.  If I didn’t know how to draw at all, the first actual tutorial might not be that helpful.  But I think Danny’s point is doing a sketchbook (or sketch journal) is more about the journey, the experience and the process than any concerns about it being “good”.

I also finished the final lesson of the Strathmore Back to Basics drawing course.  I was less satisfied with it.  I didn’t learn very much new.  That would be a good one for someone who is only just starting to draw.  And it was free.
