Portraits by Johann Krammer
There was time to draw in my vacation. After a short time, I recognized, that it was a big advantage, that my family did not want to be my models the whole time. So I had to speed up my sketchings and to focus on the essential points. There is a lot of fun to sketch with limited time!
I had some wooden model-hand with missing phalange on a ring finger and lemons. So, I arranged simple still life and tried to draw it in ink.

This drawing is of a windmill a few miles from my home. I completed a few days ago using the hatching technique. To create a sense of restfulness I used horizontal hatching for all buildings, trees and sky, but for the windmill I used cross-hatching, which I felt gave it a sense of solidity.

Artworks by Oyeleye Olalekan, Drawing Academy graduate Before I enrolled in the Drawing Academy I already drew portraits well; however, my drawing skills got even better. My shading now is far more precise. I really enjoy learning new things about drawing that alone is so satisfying. I also learned about the silver point technique. This course is one of the best drawing courses out there and I would recommend it to any serious upcoming artist because I have had a chance to talk to some artists in universities and they don’t know much about why they do what they do. I will benefit greatly from this in my business. Drawing before the course Drawing after the course
Artwork by Franci, Drawing Academy student When I started with art many years ago I did a drawing of a man that looks similar to the Sean Connery drawing I just did. I wanted to do this specific drawing to test my drawing skills and doing a known person does not leave space for errors. I loved doing this project based on what I have learned at Drawing Academy.
