Does anyone know where to get plans for a drawing bench/horse? I was very interested in the one show with the built in drawing board.

I’m in Australia so it’s pretty hard for me to get paper that is 18 x 24 inch. I’ve ordered something from Amazon but it has cost me a small fortune and it will take about a month to arrive. Do you think I could get away with using A3 size paper which is 11-3/4 x 16-1/2 and a more common size here? Or should I go for A2 size which is only slightly smaller than the 18×24 at 16-1/2 x 23-3/8 inches? Thoughts? Thanks!November 19, 2021 at 6:53 am #1943582Barbara JeiseckeParticipantNo badges.

I have seen some on Pinterest. But bought one on eBay for 35 €.

This introduction and beginners introduction to basic tools and Material is a great way of bringing together the desire of the self as the student and bridges the gap between that desire and actualisation of artistic development. I’ve been working through the template guide for drawing starting at the beginning. It is very helpful that I am able to replay each step getting the maximum amount of information through each stage of my personal artistic journey. Part of that journey for me is learning to use mixed media. Gold leaf with Egg Tempera.January 26, 2022 at 5:08 pm #2119161Stephane JoachimParticipant

Hello all. I’m Michelle. After a year or two of casually reading about and practicing drawing, painting, markers, or whatever, I want to systematically improve my knowledge and skills in order to turn my ideas into a reality on the canvas. I love illustrations and video game art. My main mediums are graphite and Acryllic. Looking forward to building a solid drawing foundation and gain some insight into what the next step should be for me. I love learning from and being inspired by other’s creations.
