There’s a lot of stuff in these pages that maybe gets buried in the chronological nature of a web-blog.

So, here are some of the more useful category searches and sub-pages:

My Books and Classes < Everything I know in one place, just to save you time.

Step by Step Demos < Posts with work-in-progress narration.

Sketching Tips and Tricks  < Helpful tips and suggestions for self-training.

Free Videos < Only a few things here, but I think there’s some good stuff :)

OneWeek100People < This is the best exercise for learning life drawing. If you only do one kind of self-teaching, this is it. Watch me do my own homework.

Download Workshop Handouts < Free PDF files from my past UrbanSketchers workshops

Painting in Watercolor < This is the good stuff :)

Gear_Easel (2)

Watercolor Painting Gear < What I use when painting in watercolor.

Drawing/Sketching Gear < There’s no end to sketching gear. This is my ‘basic kit’ to help you get started.

Reviews of Art Materials < Field testing various Urban Sketchers oriented gear.

That should get you started! Thanks for stopping by, and best of luck with your drawing and painting!
