6 Methods of Drawing So You Can Start Painting Quickly

Sketch a firm foundation to start a painting

What is this video about?

​In this video, I discuss 6 methods of drawing that you can employ to create a working sketch to begin your painting. Now I will also say this, my purpose of this video is to get you to start painting as quickly as possible and remove the obstacles of "I can't draw a stick figure", "I can't draw a straight line" etc. Through these methods you will be able to quickly sketch out your painting onto your panel or canvas. Which method you choose is up to you based on what you enjoy about the overall painting process and what you want to gain from the painting process.


"This course is packed with lots of great information to help us become better at what we love to do...PAINT! Stephanie goes in depth with available tools, use of the grids, free downloadable templates. Stephanie is an amazing artist who is dedicated and truly wants to share her knowledge with others.

"I learned from every aspect of this course but the idea that really hit home with me is this: "leave the details for the painting, if you put the details in the drawing you limit yourself". This was a foreign concept to me and I think my being so detail oriented (OCD!) has held me back and intimidated me to the point that I did not want to start painting again. I took my first person-to-person painting course with Stephanie and learning to paint without drawing using the wipe out method, glazing and creating shapes with color instead of lines has been a revelation. It has me interested all over again. "
