More Drawing Lessons? Jill Bliss

I must be going through a sketch / drawing cycle right now.  Apart from finishing some sketches the last couple of days, I've been itching to start another drawing lesson with Jill Bliss.

This is not an online course, but a learning from Jill's Drawing Nature Journal.  It is a journal which combines Jill's drawing lessons and blank pages to practice.







I have been a fan of Jill's work and am a proud owner of some of her art prints, like the one below.

The "Bear" print I got from Jill.

From her art, you can see her passion in nature and conservation.  There's an element of innocence in her style which I particularly like.  And when you look carefully at the composition and her line work, you'll be marvel at her artist skill.

Aside from her artwork, Jill is also into hand-made fabric work.  See this Datebook Cozy here.  It is such cool and ingenious invention!

So my dear fellow bloggers and creatives, I encourage you to include Jill's Drawing Nature Journal into your art bag for fun and learning!  :)

Hi, Nice to see you back!! I followed your suggestion and I have ordered the Nature Journal, it looks lovely and REALLY NEED one more book!! LOL Her pictures really are unique though. I am also thinking of taking Alisa Burkes classes- are they good? Take care.

Hello Dear One!

So nice to see you so enthused and excited about drawing (though, you're right...those cute cozies are indeed something to get excited about!)....

I'm enrolled in the 21 Secrets courses on Willowing. They start on the 1st and I'm really looking forward to pushing my limits a bit and trying some things outside my comfort zone :) Stay tuned!

Please show us more of your sketches! I love to see what you're up to!!
