Get Drawing! (even if you think you can't)


Get Drawing is an instructional book on how to observe and draw realistically, with me, your teacher, by your side.  It contains exercises, example sketches and links to online demonstrations. 

It’s to help you get drawing.  Get Drawing – understand how to do it and Get Drawing – start drawing.

Start your drawing journey!

Prof. Fiona Wood

Drawing workshop - “Now this is something that’s going to be interesting,” is what I thought facing down the barrel of knowing how bad I was at drawing. But, hey, Karen was amazing! We had a great time, with loads of laughs and by the end of the day I’d produced something I could say I was proud of. I was the raw material and Karen was clearly a master at sharing her passion and knowledge while making sure we had great fun along the way."
