Anyone can learn how to draw. Success comes down to three things:
Shape: By focusing on the shapes of the objects (and more importantly the shapes between the objects) you can view subjects with a whole new outlook and focus.
Simplicity: You'll get better results by concentrating on simple subjects and drawing techniques that will still prove powerful when used together.
Structure: A structured approach makes drawing easier to master.
Each chapter in this course is built on these three principles, combining drawing theory and practical examples with worksheets and drawing assignments. Will Kemp brings his passion for teaching and infectious love of drawing together in these lessons. You'll learn about line, value, tone, negative space, and perspective, and come away with the confidence to start making drawing a daily practice.
This course was created and produced by Will Kemp. We're honored to host this training in our library.
So in terms of paper, you just need some computer paper for doing some of the line drawing work and also for padding under your paper. And then some paper that's got a bit more quality to it, a bit more what's called GSN, which is the weight of the paper. So some cartridge paper that's got a little bit of texture into it. Work between the two. The line drawings work really nicely on computer paper, just to get you practiced. And then for the more detailed drawings we work on the cartridge paper which holds the actual graphite better.
For most of my drawings that I do, that I work up to a final piece, I always use a cartridge paper or paper that's got a bit of texture into it.
