Project - Simplify from Observation
The first project of the Drawing Basics course is to challenge yourself to simplify the shapes, edges, and values of a pear or portrait from observation. I provide you two photo options over in the downloads tab. Being able to simplify is a very useful skill to be able to communicate clearly in your drawings.

2 Week Drawing Challenge
Challenge yourself to draw every day for 2 weeks! See if you can get into the routine of drawing daily. Set aside a time and put it in your calendar. If you're already drawing every day, then do something to challenge yourself just a little more. Draw a bit longer, but don't go too crazy. Set a manageable goal, because this is in addition to the other project I’ll be giving you later. Everyday fill up one page with linear drawings from life. You can either go outside and draw something when inspiration hits, or find something at home and draw it. Take a photo of your objects if you can. Start by just looking at your subject for 1 minute. Imagine it as a drawing. Draw a few lines, then look, think, execute. Repeat till you're done. Each drawing can take 5-30 minutes, but don’t time them. I'll be drawing along with you guys and posting in the discussion below.

Project - Get Your Tools and Start Playing
Ok, before we can start, you'll need to get some tools. I’ll go into much more detail about these in the next few videos, but right now I’m gonna give you a quick shopping list, which you can also find in the lesson notes. All of these are optional except a pencil with an eraser on it, and some paper... You can get whatever looks fun to you, or all of it if you’re feeling spicy!
