....Different, but really the same thing.
by Janet Glatz
It never occurred to me to advertise lessons in drawing; I've been drawing well since I was in grade school and have always taken it for granted.
Now, I'm suddenly getting calls about learning to draw! I'm delighted about that. This new fork in the road offers up many opportunities for myself as well as the public who know me, or find me on the internet.
Drawing runs the gamut from the basics of shapes, creating light and shadow, texture, depth, and values. Anything in this world can be your subject and can be made to appear like a treasured objet d'art if done well.
Many years ago I got into pen and ink drawing, and created large scenes of nature and structures. I'm sure all that practice added to the confidence I feel today as I construct the basic forms of my paintings to be.
And it's so portable! A sketch pad and pencils under your arm and off you go, hiking, riding a train, boating. If you wish to add some color to your drawings back in the studio, the sky is the limit.
So I welcome those calls from people who want to literally start from the beginning and, hopefully, move on from that sound basis to whatever feels right for them.
