Learn to Draw with Dennis Lyall
View a fascinating video presented by Master Artist, Dennis Lyall. Drawing is difficult because it involves the hands and the eyes... and the eyes are the problem. All of us LOOK, but few of us SEE. Check out this short video for a few more details and a quick drawing demonstration. Anyone with the interest and determination to draw can master the skill. It just takes practice (and patience) at training oneself to SEE. Even if you are interested in computer graphics, you need to know the basics of drawing, and I can help you.
