    In this lesson, instructor Sheldon Borenstein demonstrates the basics of drawing still life objects. You will study the importance of still life drawing, and how it will benefit you throughout your artistic career. With a series of colored pencils, you will learn how to loosely sketch the shape and structure of each still life object. Then, Sheldon will show you how to refine your sketches by drawing on top of them, using contour lines and shading.

    This lesson belongs to the course Stress-Free Sketching. In this 8-week course, Sheldon Borenstein will teach you stress-free ways to sketch and draw. With his 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry and teaching, Sheldon will help you start your artistic career on the right foot. You will learn the essential elements of scribble, shape, form, and the laws of light. Sheldon will walk you through everything from the initial setup to the proper way of sharpening your pencils. He will also share with you his favorite tools to use while sketching.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.

    The teacher’s drawing does not match the object being drawn. Is he measuring it or he just draws a candle holder randomly? Because if he would measure it the whole measures are wrong.

    Hi Natalia, “sketching” implies a loose and quick approach to drawing.

    If you wish to study a more measured approach, I’d recommend these courses 🙂 Good luck!
