“Drawing Reflective Objects: Water” How-To Video
Reflective objects can present such incredible drawing and painting opportunities! The eye goes right to those bright, shimmery flashes in your composition. But it can be tricky rendering reflections, especially in water because those reflections can be so distorted and fluid. This video will put you on the right track to being able to render reflections in water realistically in your work.

But I simplify it so you can see right away how to approach drawing this feature.

A Word from the Author (Me!)
“More than just teaching you how to draw any one particular thing, the purpose of this book is to teach you how to draw anything you see. Anything. That requires a systematic, methodical approach to lay a solid foundation with each concept building on the previous. If you take the time to learn and practice the concepts in this book diligently, you’ll find yourself able to draw pretty much anything you see around you, no matter how complicated, because you will know how to strip a composition down to its basics and then build on that.”

One-Time Art Critique with Sarah Parks
One of the most invaluable resources available to an artist to help them develop their skills is professional critique. It’s one thing to ask your friend or neighbor if they like your work, but a professional artist is able to pinpoint exactly what works in your drawing or painting and what needs improvement. Moreover, a professional artist has the knowledge to explain exactly how to improve the weak areas of your painting or drawing. With my extensive experience in both pencil drawing and painting in portraiture, landscape, figurative, and still life subjects, I provide thoughtful, detailed critiques for not only the young or less experienced artist, but also the long-time artist who needs a professional eye for his or her drawing. Just click on the Buy Now button below and you will be taken to a form where you can submit your images directly to me. You will need to have a clear digital image of your critiqued drawing to email to me and, if possible, a digital image of the composition you worked from. You may purchase as many critiques as you wish. (For a sample critique, click HERE.) (This particular item will be purchased through PayPal.)
Testimonials from critiqued customers and students:
I understand what you’re explaining because I have, over time, gathered many excellent books and videos on drawing. For me, the main issue with these media is the lack of feedback, so I value your critiques very much identifying where to focus and how to correct issues.
— Dermot Hayes
Thank you so much for your course. The teaching and encouragement was great. I appreciated being able to download and print the lesson materials. I’m sure I will refer to my binders with these lessons in weeks to come. Watching the videos were very helpful in understanding the lesson. Your encouraging critiques were always inspiring and helped me continue even when I didn’t think I had done very well. I always want to do it better. You encouraged me to keep trying. I don’t know what you could do to improve this course. I learned well from your teaching style, and the content was excellent, especially the way each lesson built on the previous one. Thanks again for your excellent teaching.
— Marilyn Dueck
