Absolutely! I went to my first urban sketch workshop and was totally unprepared for perspective. I choked. I love that Julia is giving permission to forget it for now and practice. I'm learning so much and she's helping me to relax about it.
Of course she's so skillful that she gives me a complex! LOL!
I start this class and i think is very good. All clear information and step by step for any begginer.
