Draw with Me – Session 6


In the final session of the course we’ll work with what we’ve learnt so far to make a drawing of an interior setting. You can choose to make your own arrangement of furniture and objects or work with my reference photos. Maybe you have a favourite spot with a chair in front of a window that you’d like to draw? Or perhaps you have a collection of objects on a mantelpiece that you find inspiring? Even the array of plates, cutlery and napkins on a dining table after dinner could be an exciting subject to draw!

This is a long demonstration video and I’d recommend tackling it over several sessions. Remember, there’s no rush with this drawing and it’s fine to work on it over several days if that suits you. I have listed time points for key stages in the lesson so that you can fast forward through to the bit you need today.
