Warning… Once you start looking at Paul Heaton’s sketches you won’t be able to stop! Each one is so full of fabulousness (is that a word? Apparently so!) – This guy can sketch like you wouldn’t believe. He does it often (which is very obvious). He’s got a great sense of humor (read his bio below!). He offers online classes via Cratsy (link below). Everyone wants to know how to draw, they say if you draw ten minutes a day, every day you will see a noticeable improvement and it doesn’t take years and years. It’s kind of like writing, none of us were born knowing how to write, but you learn and then TA-DA! You can do it! Wouldn’t it be so cool to learn how to draw – learn perspective and any tips/tricks that would make it a little easier? That’s where I think classes would be a big help – that along with daily practice you will be amazing! So what’s holding you back? Paper, pencils, eraser… easy to take with you wherever you go – and perhaps a Craftsy class?

Read a bit about Paul, from his blog:
I really like to draw. I paint, too, though I’m not as fond of it (or as good at it). I also teach art, sell art supplies, pretend to blog, and other stuff.I’ve been a correspondent for Urban Sketchers since (almost) the beginning, first from Bozeman, Montana, then from San Antonio, Texas (my hometown) and now from Denver, Colorado.I received an MFA in painting from Montana State University in 2008 because I’d been there long enough and they acquiesced to my demand of a degree in exchange for my paying tuition and learning and stuff.I am happily married in Denver to the extraordinary and rather intimidating Linda Permann. We have a dog, Freddie, who is not intimidating, but he does smell funny.I also have a daughter, Juniper, who is already starting to threaten my status as the best artist in the family.I have contributed artwork to these books:The Art of Urban Sketching by Gabi CampanarioUrban Sketching: The Complete Guide to Techniques by Thomas ThorspeckenCapitol Knits by Tanis GrayOther Peoples’ Love Letters by Bill Shapiro
