Explore your how-to-draw Videos
the CREATIVE TECHNIQUE seriesThis series assumes you know the basic techniques, and have worked your way through the Basic Techniques series, although that's not essential.
These DRAW WITH MIKE videos provide additional techniques. More importantly, as your skills develop you begin to think less about technique and more on the message within your art. That might involve telling a simple story, or perhaps emphasising the beauty of something that you're attracted to. This series moves in that direction - it tackles the mental preparation and mindset required to lift your art to the next level.
As a professional graphite artist for over 40 years, I know what you need to know. I also understand the problems you'll encounter along the way, because for over 10 years I've been running the 8-week Drawspace Intermediate course that this series is based on.
