How to Draw, and How to Enjoy and Keep Drawing

A sketch and the finished drawing by Peony and Parakeet. Watch Paivi's webinar about the joy of drawing and get her tips to enjoy and keep drawing!

Yesterday, I ran a webinar about drawing. It’s always a lot of fun to talk about the topic I love so much. Thank you all who joined me!

The Joy of Drawing

I wanted to include the word “joy” in the title of the webinar because, in the end, it’s what keeps us drawing. I shared ideas about what supplies to use, what to draw, and how to solve those situations when you don’t grab a pen even if there’s a chance.

Unfortunately, the recording of the webinar wasn’t the best quality, maybe the snowstorm that has just blown over Finland had some effect on it. But luckily, I had some extra footage and I also made some more to compensate the parts that affected the experience. The video has a lot of ideas and examples, so it’s worth watching.

Video Blog Post: Free Doodling

Here it is – my first video blog post! Here you can see how I create a small artwork by doodling freely with colored pencils and markers. It took about 30 minutes to create the drawing. You will see every single phase, but a part of it is fast forwarded.

This was terribly exciting, so please excuse my slow talking and grammar mistakes!
