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.
