Just draw it/paint it

IMG_0942I bought a brilliant book, Just Draw It, by Sam Piyasena & Beverly Philip and it has been a great way to get back into a habit of drawing without the pressure of trying to create something great.  It is organised as a series of exercises which provide essential practice for your brain, eye and hand- from rapid-fire sketches, to detailed observations of tones and contrasts, to capturing the mood of a scene, or looking at structure through the formal rules of perspective.


Get your pencils and paints out and enjoy the practice as much as the finished product.

Here are few sketches from the book and beyond.
