Toad Hollow Studio - Drawing lessons and tutorials.
Welcome to my studio. I will be sharing my art, drawing technique and 20+ year's experience with you here. These drawing lessons and tutorials were created out of the love of drawing. In them I share the drawing technique I use to create all my artwork. The lessons include beginning to advanced drawing instruction presented in well illustrated lessons with lots of technique advice and discussion.

Some people call it sketching ... I call it sculpting with light and shadow.

A Word From Carol

Did you know that when you draw you create magic? It's true. When you draw, you create something new that never existed before. When you draw, you make an idea or feeling into something tangible. You have, in fact, taken an abstract concept and made it into a reality. Artists make ideas dance and emotions sing. If you ask me, there is no higher form of magic and all artists are really shamans who bring this magic into the world.
