Lesson One- Drawing your home First find a long verticle object that can be used as a measuring stick. Pencil it in very lightly. Find the position of a few objects, such as fence posts and house rooves in relation to your “measuring stick”. Lightly sketch in the shadows. Keep a rubber in your hand to make corrections as you go along. Draw in more details. Add textures of foliage or bark. Emphasise contrast between light and dark ares.
