About this pro

I have taught drawing classes for beginners to intermediate students dealing with line drawing, simple perspectives and estimating values to define abstract shapes which lead to a collective and an overall definition of photo-realism. My specialty is portrait drawing and many other themes and subject matter. I have been drawing for over 30 years here in the United States and abroad in Sweden. I have formal training at The Rocky Mountain College of Art in Denver, Colorado an have had pieces exhibited in London, Singapore, Sweden, The Netherlands and here in the USA. To view my works, I have provided a link on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ralph.murray.50
