Sketching A Girl With A Hat by Ed Wade

This video is really about sketching a face, but this one shows you how to deal with some other challenges. She has a hat on and has her face resting in her hands. The solution is to remember to find simple shapes, lay them in quickly, make sure they are relating to each other correctly, then turn the simple shapes into your drawing.
Ed has also written an easy to read book that explains the fourteen principles of design and shows you exactly how to use them to create better art and draft better compositions and designs. This book is fully illustrated and packed with great instruction. Feel free to take a look: Go to
