A Beginner's Guide to Drawing

The New Masters Academy Beginner Series helps aspiring artists start their artistic journey on the right foot. Your expert instructors will gently guide you to an understanding of drawing fundamentals. In this final lesson of the series, Bill Perkins will demonstrate various landscape drawing exercises. Bill will start by planning his composition with matrices, and will show you how you can use your knowledge of value control, notan and chiaroscuro, and to combine everything you have learned in this series to successfully draw your own landscape composition.
