    I began to draw years ago and then life got in the way. Now that I am back, on occasion, I run into a subject that stymies me…..and I search for someone who can give me “fresh eyes;” a new visual direction. I have never seen anyone who could so quickly reduce a complex subject, such as this, into a simple and easily understood model, as Nolan does here. Just run a YouTube search and compare the results based on the reference photos. Really clear, clean, concise,….. extraordinary………Thank you.

    I loved this class! I have always wanted to draw the sea but didn’t know how to attempt getting the waves, splashes, and movement of the water onto paper. I was truly impressed with how well Nolan’s instructions resulted in one of the best drawings I’ve done!
