Real artists teach you how to paint, draw and sketch
Are you still spending too much time at home and wondering why you aren't learning all those fabulous things you promised yourself you would learn during iso? Here are some tips for great free resources you can engage with.
Brandon Schaefer of SchaeferArt is an artist who focuses on Oil Painting, Drawing, and Watercolor Painting. If you're a complete novice but always wanted to learn to draw, this guy provides excellent total beginner explanations and demonstrations that you can easily follow. He explains what basic equipment you need to start out. He offers a series of art classes in interesting, easy, bite-sized videos of (more or less) around 15 minutes each. He makes it safe to start, safe to make mistakes, in an understanding and nonjudgmental, personal lesson in your own home, in your own time, so you can jump right in and give it a go. Go to Brandon's SchaeferArt Youtube page for all his recordings, and see what interests you. You can check out SchaeferArt on Facebook. Of course, as with any artist, Brandon Schaefer is keen to sell the art he produces.
