By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.
Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.
John Updike, September

Drawing courses and books you recommend for beginners
There are lots of drawing books and resources out there my personal favourites are Andrew Loomis books
I have a list and order in which to read them (suggested by someone else) for loomis books
They are freely available under public domain so you can just google the name of book and download it
1) "Fun with Pencil"
2) "Figure Drawing for all its worth" or "Successful Drawing"
3) "Creative Illustration"
4) and finally "The Eye of the Painter"
I have also read Drawing on the right side of the brain and I enjoy watching lovelifedrawing lessons on how to draw :)
Please share resources you find useful for composition, proportions, forms and what do you practice for such.
drawabox is another resource I have heard of and tried, though didn't get far enough to have an opinion on that.
I am a beginner drawing student, I have spent around 4-5 months drawing things from life and photographs, I aspire to be an artist.
I am yet to find my loving medium of expression.
