Basic Drawing

0 min read
I recently attended a nine-week Basic Drawing course at The Art League in Alexandria, Virginia.  I posted entries after each session in my blog, including photos of my work.  I uploaded my favorites here to dA but this is everything.  Feel free to check it out, make comments, give suggestions.  Or just check out the entire set sans commentary.

I draw with pencil.  That's it.  I've never learned to paint, use charcoals, or do amazing things with Photoshop.  I am also far too dependent on my eraser to attempt ink just yet.  Give me
