work on line drawing
5 star rating
In the course we work with the line from drawing an object without looking at the sheet, and without lifting the marker from it (continuous line). then the same activity but looking at the sheet. and finally we could lift the marker and draw the object normally. 👍 then I post a drawing of this class here we work continuous line and we could look.
It seemed very good and I felt very comfortable greetings from Argentina
