  1. It is quite cool! Never thought of drawing a wood texture possible. I am excited with my first try and would love to practice more.

    • Wow, Matt. Paradoxily, your drawing looks much more like a piece of wood than the reference does. Despite it being a tidious exercize, I look forward to give it a go. You are an excellent teacher.

  2. Thank you so much for these courses!! I’m a self-taught visual artist and already, as a new person here, I have way more confidence and skill. <3

  3. Wow! I am really enjoying your teaching methods and your knowledge. This is my first course and several times I think….wow! That looks hard. Don’t know if I can do this. But as you assure your students and demonstrate the techniques, low and behold….I can do it!thanks so much. Learning so much already.

  4. Reiterating what everyone else has said here..you are such a fabulous teacher! I love listening to your tips as you draw and am rapidly building basic skills here! As a former homeschool mom who is now embarking on new adventures in learning of my own, I truly appreciate the manner in which you encourage and build confidence with insightful fundamental truths about the learning process. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  5. I love watching you draw. I Love doing animal drawings. I have some trouble making chubby short haired dogs. How do you make chubby rolls look real??? You had a class on making material folds look real. Cant’t seem to find the class? Thought it might help me.
    Thanks for all your help!
