I started drawing in march this year. After careful research I bougth the book The natural way to draw and found a thread Attempting the natural way to draw completly dedicated to the book. Many thanks to Courtyard for starting and updating this thread. (I hope you'll keep it going and finish the book)
In between the work I did completing the schedules from The natural way to draw, which I'll spare you, I signed up for a short drawing course. The teacher gave me a picture from Matisse to draw and the result is attached. I liked the drawing so much, I framed it and it's now hanging proudly in my living room.
This is the start of my journey.
