Beginners: Part 4-Draw with Shapes

More videos

In this art video I explain how to draw a complicated object by using simple shapes. The video is designed for beginners, children and those looking to develop their drawing. The drawing is based around a woodman’s plane , I explain how to look for the basic shapes of the object and then once those are established add the detail and the final shading. Towards the end of the video I give you 4 great tips for improving your drawing and making the outline sketch much more three dimensional.

This videos Patrons are: Farida Grewal and Marie Gamboa
