Art practice challenge: starting with a shape

I highly recommend Amarilys Henderson’s Skillshare class Start with a Shape – An Illustration Challenge for anyone who’s feeling stuck, or doesn’t know what to draw/paint. She walks through why this illustration challenge is a helpful activity, basic shapes to try, and four ways to approach illustrating with your shape. It’s so much fun! And challenging, too. I found I needed to do a few to get unstuck, but after awhile started to feel a flow.
