When old techniques reach their limits, then new techniques must be tried. This current drawing technique based on the Russian Soft Bruch technique has many benefits and the results are showing.
This drawing is of one of our newest members at our Midrand Extraordinaires Toastmasters club. There’s been some very good improvements in my drawing techniques, but still there’s a lot more practice to do.
