    Watching your video on drawing in perspective was very worthwhile; it’s something I’ve wanted to learn (again), as my last experience with it was in the mid-’80s in drawing/arts class, first grade of secondary school. Applied the techniques you’ve shown to a little project I’m working on at the moment, a towel rack for in the shower. I had already made a freehand sketch of it in my usual, personal and informal style, but now made it again, this time using formal vanishing points. Looks very nice. Much more professional. I need more practice, but the first result is certainly encouraging.

    Incidentally, watching the image of the piece of paper stuck to the drawingboard, your hand and it holding the pencil, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the drawing of Maurits Escher, “Drawing Hands”:

    I’ve always struggled to get into sketching. This video is really helpful and gives so many tips to get you started on the right path. I’m going to make that wooden guide and practice what you showed.

    I signed up for the giveaway, fingers crossed!
