Each of us has our own way of visually interpreting the world. The way one sees and translates shadow, color, form and spatial relationship is an extremely personal and magnificent expression. That is why all artwork is beautiful, no matter the technical skill. Composing original and creative drawings is within everyone’s capabilities. Understanding the behavior of your tools can be the first step to mastering your artwork. Starter sets and “how to” books are great ways to learn about basic materials and build your skills.
