Drawing by Ronnie Rayner Larter

Originally I used a lot of soft blending with graphite pencil, but since becoming a member of the Drawing Academy I progressed onto hatching and cross hatching, which was a new and interesting avenue for me. However, even though the academy seems to frown the technique soft blending graphite, I have kind of ignored that teaching and also taken on board the idea of hatching. I now use a combination of soft blending and hatching to achieve the effects I need. Does it work well or not? Feedback would be welcome.

I am learning so much

I found the exercise incredibly insightful, for a few days I was seeing everyone’s faces as skulls! And I also started to observe how the muscles move the skin over the bones… a bit obsessive I guess but I am learning. Doing this exercise did change my perception and understanding in a deep way. It is one thing to draw an oval and divide it in the proportions of the face and put features into place, but to comprehend the skull underneath, to see where the external features actually “sit” and move from was deeply enlightening.

Maggie

I started drawing at the age of 2. That was many decades ago and although I’ve always loved drawing I didn’t keep up with improving my skills.

I wanted to do something for my son and thought he’d like a portrait of his beloved dog. I was so pleased with the results (considering I had not drawn in many years) that I decided this was the right time to start again. Fortunately, I discovered the Drawing Academy and joined. I really look forward to seeing my work and skills improve.

My art story

I have been drawing and painting for many years, but my work was based on copying from photos. I always knew that it should be a better way to create my own art, yet my drawing skills were not good enough to draw from life or imagination. It was taking me a lot of time to find a photo to draw from, and it was never the image I was looking for. So, I decided that I have to find the right art course where I could learn how to draw anything I want.

When I found the Drawing Academy I was pleasantly surprised by its quality and low cost. It offers so much, including a lifetime membership and personal support by tutors…
