It's been quite a while since I made a post here and it's mostly because there are many other folks doing a better job. I recently attended two printmaking workshops and found that I had forgotten most of what I had learned earlier. These 3 fairly basic articles defining printmaking, the various types and sub-types might come in handy in case you are interested in this very interesting branch of fine art. They certainly will come in handy before the next printmaking workshop for me! :D

MOMA on What is a Print? - It is animated and highly recommended

American Artists with an Introduction to Printmaking for fine art and

Printmaking on Wikipedia has more details on the various types and sub types

The work above has been drawn and painted on a prepared limestone for a Lithograph, with a glass pencil and some diluted tusche. You can see the outcome here.

Learning to draw

A couple of days back there was comment asking for help on starting to draw and paint. I'd asked him to join the WetCanvas! Classroom forum and to look up some additional sources from this site.
This morning I got a newsletter from drawspace . I find that it is growing to be a wonderful online resource for drawing lessons. These are divided into 3 levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. drawspace also has a forum which is slowly growing and the activities are focussed on drawing with pencil, charcoal, color pencils and pen & ink. All the lessons have been written by one person and you have a choice of viewing it for free online or downloading the pdf version for a small fee. Brenda Hoddinott whose lessons populate this website is amongst other things a self taught artist. She is currently working on a new website along similar lines for Fine Art.

Today, Mayank has got an update with details of this site as an alternative and few other suggestions one of which I shall put …

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

Betty Edwards book has been a huge success. While putting together the last but one post I found a thread on the CGTalk forum based on the exercises in the book. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was the first book on drawing that I purchased and it got me started. This was over two years ago but I haven't got around to finishing the exercises in the book. I'm hoping to do so sometime soon and this thread will come in handy then.
