Expertise

I can show easy methods of drawing objects and the human figure from imagination or from life study, especially drawing the characteristics of a particular person with emphasis on the 3 - D form. Im "Old School" so dont ask me about computer assisted drawing.I can help with Perspective and choosing suitable materials to tackle a subject or a theme with the addition of introducing a humourous approach or message .This might be useful for those entering Cartoon competitions or wishing to send someone a special event birthday card etc. Drawing elipses as in bottles, glasses ,still life objects etc are easy for me to expain. I can show how to develop a sketch into a sculpture using wire or a welded steel frame / armature.
