Heidi Seal has created a wonderful drawing of a man holding a huge fish for her Beginners Drawing Course. We are pretty sure that the chap didn’t stand to pose while Heidi sketched him! It was more than likely that Heidi drew the portrait from a photo. Drawing from photos is great practice and Heidi has done a superb job here capturing the man along with the proud look on his face.

As well as working from photos we try to encourage our students to draw from life as well. It really helps to be able to translate three dimensional objects onto two dimensional pieces of paper. Working from life also helps to develop your observational skills too, which is really important for artists.

Why not let us know what you are working on, we would love to see!
