This was a great class, Nolan. I enjoyed all of the theory in preparation for the drawing. The examples of various white objects and their shadows gave clarity when we got to doing the drawing of the spoon. This is a class I will review more than once to deepen my understanding and ability to spot tonal changes in an object.

Hi Nolan, just wanted to thank you for the excellent methods that you are using in your lessons. As a X – educator I think that the for steps – explain, show, do feedback I\\’m enjoying your lessons making it much easier than I thought it will be. following your instruction is making easier and enjoyable.


the only thing that i\\’m missing is \\”where is the send bottom\\” -I would like to send my work and have the last step given to me.

it is already late at night and will be happy to find it in our morning

thanks again
