31 Things to Draw with Pam Garrison

March 28, 2016

Hard to believe we’re nearly in April. Well, I’ve been sketching every day this month and the 31 things to draw with Pam Garrison is coming to an end.

It has been a wonderful class and I’ve really enjoyed drawing a lot of subjects I’ve never drawn before. One of my favourite was drawing Seed Pods (see March 12). I will definitely re-visit some of the subjects in months to come.

We often complain about how more stressful life is due to the internet but I just look at the positives. Who knew that people would dream up online classes platforms like Creativebug where for the tiniest amount of money you can join 100’s of classes and develop, practice or simply just have fun. How amazing is this?

One of the best inventions is to prompt us to upload on Instagram and share what we’ve done. The drawing/sketching/painting community is extremely supportive and I’m greatful to be part of it. Thank you!

Here are some of my favourites.

    Ooooh I could look at your drawings forever! I love the handbags and buttons, but I ever travel to London I will break into your flat and steal the seed pods drawing, that much is sure. 😀
