I have decided to add in the websites and youtube tutorials that I have been following to help in drawing and sketchbook sketching skills.  These are some of the most helpful I have found, and I practice a little everyday to try and improve. Got a long way to go, but also have come a long way…..

  1. Alphonse Dunn has a series of tutorials on pen and ink studies. I really enjoyed the three on textures, as they also link into textiles and fabric work. I also love drawing flowers so I followed his tutorial on flower pen and ink work too    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smAJFoedfvE
  2. I came across the Artist Journal Workshop and have found lots to explore and work with. Cathy Johnson has developed tutorials, blogs, links to other artists which are so useful. I followed the Drawing and sketching course for some practical help, and then most fun to follow has been the Facebook group Artist’s Journal Workshop. http://artistsjournalworkshop.blogspot.com/p/design-ideas.html
