Jump right into this Doing Drawing Class and find What You Need To Do to understand what 3-D drawing is really about. Ron will show you why Doing Drawing With 3-D is first and foremost a feeling and not a brain thing.

We think that 2-D drawing is for kids and un-schooled adults: This is not true at all! Drawing in 2-D is the foundation for 3-D drawing. Without this foundation, you will just be a trained monkey that sees and do's without feeling and understanding.

Here is a fundamental 3-D concept from our class to consider; Without 'shape' there is no 'form'. Understand that shape is 2-D  and then you can add one more dimension...depth...now you have a form which is called 3-D.

• A circle becomes a sphere
• A square becomes a cube
• A triangle becomes a cone

I promise that this class is not full of technical information. Drawing with insight and feeling will open up your thinking and understanding of 3-D drawing far quicker than learning the rules of convergence with explanations for parallel and oblique linear perspective.

If you are not having fun you are not Doing Art.

What is in this class?

I have started with a quick review of our first class and added some great 3-D drawings games and exercises.

The 3-D Cat Project shows you how to draw all your cats and then I do a 'speed paint' demo in watercolor to show you how it could look.

The one-point perspective Barn Project has two step by step drawings of a country scene that you can choose from. I also finish with a quick painting demo for this also.

3-D Puddle Project is a complete step by step draw and watercolor.

Doing Drawing: Jump Into 3-D  is the second of a 5 part series on all you will need to know about drawing.

I have investigated drawing and studied as many drawing disciplines that I could find, from John Ruskin's, (1850) "The Elements Of Drawing" to Betty Edward's, (1979) "Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain". All have opened my artistic sight and all have merit.

There is, of course, no definitive drawing method that will cover everything that you will need, to give you the confidence and assurance that you have reached your drawing goal or at least a comfort zone that gives both satisfaction as well as justifiable pride.

Our Doing Drawing series is a synthesis of all I have discovered from others and from personal exploration. It has served me well and I am sure it will start you in the right direction also.

Artist / Art Teacher

Teacher

I've been working as a full-time artist since 1980. I have had the pleasure of teaching art since 1983 and have taught thousands of classes on drawing and painting. I would consider it a privilege to assist you in achieving your artistic goals.

I have taught the basic and advanced mechanics and principles which give us the skill and confidence to express creatively, for the past 30 years. Sharing them is my passion!

What Do I Like Teaching?

Watercolors and Acrylic are my specialty. I work with oils also but not as often as the water based mediums.

I love trees, mountains, rocks, water, flowers, and all that nature has to offer. Getting out into nature always gives me a creative boost. You get the real energy and feeling of space and belonging.See full profile
