Shape vs. Structure: Integrating two ways of drawing (video workshop)

Here is a video of one of the nature journal club workshops where we explore two ways of drawing: understanding the form and structure of your subject vs. looking at it as a collection of interlocking shapes. I use both of these approaches in any drawing.

    What a fantastic lesson. I did all the sketching and it was amazing how much easier it was and how much more realistic they looked after using the principles taught in the video. Thank you so very much for all the great help!!

    Thank you very much for this video John.
    I study art and this has actually helped my sketching immensely and helped me relax while drawing as well.

    What you are teaching in this video lecture. Fantastic. Such a gift to all of us who can not attend these sessions in person. I was drawing along with others in your actual class. Thinking/drawing of shapes and/or including this technique with other techniques really worked for me…and trusting what you are actually observing of the animal, flower, tree, whatever. Thank you once again. Checking out your website and especially getting these posts… It’s like receiving a beautifully wrapped present, knowing that something even more wonderful will be revealed inside – and you’re never disappointed.
