Development of ideas, is also about taking inspiration from artists, developing their techniques to further develop your own work and your skills. 

Watch each video or click on the picture to see the artist name, then explore their work further by looking on Pinterest or google. Also take time to watch the videos of the student sketchbooks that have been created based on their chosen artists.
