I had an “Ah-ha” moment with this video. All my life I loved art, but could never seem to quite figure out how to draw or transfer images I had to use paper – and even with the few drawing lessons I did have – I found that the instructors expected me to already know how to draw – which seemed odd since I did not know how to draw and simply wanted to learn. This is a great video that cuts straight to the heart of the matter. I would recommend this to anyone who has sat and stared at a piece of paper, pencil in hand and sighed because they just could not get the image on the paper.
