15-Minute Sketch: Ravens & Crows

by Paint Tube 1 Minutes

We absolutely love how Karen Knutson’s Fun with Mixed Media has a crow as its subject matter. What a great excuse to draw these birds. And maybe you'll find one you want to turn into a mixed media painting!

Please note: The video does not include audio. Think of it as a reference photo slideshow: Five reference photos will be on the screen each for 3-minutes each. Ready, set, sketch!




Check out the larger versions of the images from the video. Follow the link to find out more about the photographers who shared them:

Learning to draw takes daily practice. Start by taking 15-minutes a day to draw. Each week we'll post a new sketching video. Each video has 5 reference photos based on a theme. Each image is up on the screen for 3 minutes. If you want to spend more time with an image, see the direct links below for the copyright-free images.
