About This Class

There is something so beautiful about simple line drawings.  It's like going back to basics.  For me, it's quite therapeutic to create something so clean and so bold.  That's why I love a black on white palette; it is refreshing.  In this class, I'm going to share with you, my process for very minimalistic line drawings starting with the sketching process all the way to the finished product.  

Fun fact:  Did you know that if part of an object is obscured, your brain will complete the shape, line or form, making it as if you can see the entire object?  We'll consider the details of our subject, but leave as much as possible to the imagination, letting the brain complete the picture.  I have demonstrations in three different mediums so you can find just the right one for you... or do all three of them!  

I look forward to share my work with you and I can't wait to see your projects!
