Hi to everyone joining me here!

This step-by-step class walks you through the process of drawing a water droplet using just pencil shading.

You will only need basic materials (pencil, paper, sharpener, eraser, a tissue) and you need no drawing experience or skill whatsoever to produce something that looks good!

So if you're bored in your lunchtime break, why not have a go at this fun drawing exercise? :)
