in the beginning
I have, as I am sure just about every artist I know has, a billion, well at least a million art books. I have decided to stop buying new books and actually go through the ones I own. The first one I am going to read and work through is "Keys to Drawing" by Bert Dodson. I chose this one because I love to draw and while I have pretty good drawing skills, I think everyone can improve. I believe the better I can draw, the easier it is to paint and the more fun I will have.
So find your copy of "Keys to Drawing", pick up your pencil, pen or whatever and join me in a book journey. I am going to post results of the exercises quite frequently. Lets begin with chapter 1 - a very good place to start. The first exercise is a drawing of your feet crossed. I will post my drawing Wednesday.
Remember have fun.
