Getting Back to Art Making


…there are lots of free tutorials on the internet

Sometimes you need to start small to get back into the groove. With Covid-19 and self isolating there is only so much cleaning a person can do. I managed to clear away enough clutter from my art table and I tuned to Sketchbook Skool’s free classes called the Drawing Party.

Today I did the first two classes. It gave me just enough inspiration to get my creative juices flowing. The first lesson focused on laying down shapes of colour and then adding detail with black ink. I pretty much followed Danny’s lead but I can see doing this on my own. For the colour I used my chalk markers and Artist Loft markers. DEDE3645-8788-4-AEB-A479-865-F43-CACA22

The second class was all about slowing down and drawing lots of detail. My subject was a dried up hydrangea.F73523-F5-FCF5-4-BF1-9-E85-BB7-BC767-EBC9

    • There are so many great freebies out there right now. I’ve also been watching Mo Willems’ lessons for kids. Once I start I just want to keep going. That probably why I do these late at night because I wouldn’t get anything done during the day. Thanks Judith. I hope you find time to make art.
