Basic drawing skills for painters and pastelists are easy to learn and to apply to your personal style. Students will learn simple methods for getting the subject onto the paper or canvas. These skills free the artist from the need to trace or project their image. The benefit of working this way is that the artist is free to make changes to the composition as they work. The whole painting is therefore more flexible and under the artist’s control. This course is appropriate for both beginners and experienced students.
