This picture was my first attempt at pointilation drawing. It seemed to take forever to draw, but was quite pleased with the results.

Post update June 10, 2014

I'm currently going through the blog and updating posts that feature my drawings in them. When I started the blog, I wanted to post my drawings to get feedback on my artwork, and maybe a critique that may help improve my drawing.

When I drew the above pictures, I had only been drawing for about eight years. I started drawing when I was 37 years old. I did have an artist friend that got me interested and taught me a few techniques to get started. After those tutorials from my friend, I went on the hunt to find resources to learn more about drawing. I found several very good books that focused on drawing which I worked through. I still refer to these books when I want to draw, especially when I'm trying something new.

So now, I've decided to go through this blog and update it with a new purpose of making available all the resources that I used to learn to draw and continue finding new resources that could help people learn. I started to draw as an adult, and when I started I thought I couldn't draw anything. The books that I found, and some internet websites really changed that for me. Check out my Art Resources Page to find texts that I used while learning.

Thanks for stopping in!

Adult Colouring Pages Free to Download

Adult Colouring Pages Adult colouring books are becoming more popular, and as their popularity grows so does the price tag. I just went and bought one for my wife and the price was well over $30 CAD. That's pretty steep as far as I'm concerned. 
I bought it because I was hearing all the benefits of colouring for relaxation, mindfulness, and the like. I like to draw, and I am well aware of the benefits of drawing, but whether the benefits of drawing are similar in colouring I won't say for sure. You may want to read the article "Are You Having a Relationship with an Adult Coloring Book" in Psychology Today to gain further insight on the subject. 
After paying the steep price for an adult colouring book, I thought I would search the web to find anything on the subject, and possible free to download colouring pages. And, well, there is tons of stuff out there. Two sites that I found are quite good and have lots of pages that you can download for free. Davidrd Colle…
