About This Class

Build up your own portfolio of 'body parts'

Learn from 11 'how to' video demonstrations

This is NOT a life drawing course.

No longer will you be overwhelmed by even the thought of putting people in your sketches or even your painting, because I have devised a fool proof method to help you create believable figures. Many people find that drawing people is a real stumbling block so I have created this class to show you how a few techniques can get you past this. 

By working through my clear and easy to understand video demonstrations you will discover the secret of how to break down the construction of a person, one bit at a time, to the simplest elements and find it's not as difficult as you thought.

Each video (sometimes two) will look at one part of the body at a time, this way the learning is in manageable chunks. Take your time and practice each step of the way. Then when your confidence has grown you will be able to create more figures of your own.

This is for those who want to add some feeling of activity and sense of event to there visual representation.

Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.

Here's a bit about me.
