My drawing tutorials are online only. (I don't teach in person.)
Hi, I'm Carol Rosinski and I love drawing.
I've tried other mediums throughout my life but nothing has been a more expressive tool for me than the humble pencil.
Graphite is limited by its lack of color, but I find that limitation challenging. Like a river that's forced to run between rocky banks, it forces me to go deeper.
I created a how-to book with Walter Foster Publishing called Drawing Made Easy: Getting Started, and that was a huge WooHoo moment for me, but I've always been very happy posting my lessons here so you can draw along with me.
Because I get asked this a lot, let me repeat: My lessons are online only. (I'm way too much of an introvert to teach in person.)
About Toad Hollow Studio
Animals and the life cycles of nature have always been my inspiration. I study them closely and see that all lives are full of happiness, grief, relief, fear, peacefulness, and great joy.
Since my artwork is inspired by nature, I named my art studio "Toad Hollow Studio" to reflect the rich and wonderful stories I see unfolding around me. It seems like we have a story from "Wind in the Willows" acted out in our backyard everyday. When I started putting my work online, it seemed natural to name my web site "toadhollowstudio.com."
