Is using a Drawing Aid “cheating”? In this podcast, we discuss how to check your work and ensure that your free-hand drawings are accurate with the help of drawing aids. It is essential that your drawing is accurate before you colour the picture and realise mistakes then. With the pastel pencil medium, we are in luck as the pastel can be removed using an eraser but ideally we’d like to have a great picture that we can colour without erasing our work. Listen to the podcast below where we read your emails and Colin offers his advice.
