About This Class

d2b7f3af

Accurate proportion is vital if you want to learn how to draw realistically.

In this class we look at the technical side of measuring widths, lengths, angles and points that line up as a way of gaining a good understanding of how to draw your subject accurately.

Draw along with me to practice measuring techniques and produce a 'skeleton' drawing that maps out your subject so you have an accurate base to work from.

This class is suitable for complete beginners or artists wanting techniques to use to improve the accuracy of their drawings.

Happy drawing!
