Attending Classes or Learning from Books

Signing up a local art class or buying a few books to learn by myself. I picked the later option because I have a full-time job as a development programmer and I am a full time mom. Going to a class after work will be a stretch. I would like to learn this in my own pace as I can’t promise myself to practice everyday.

So the first book I purchased was Drawing for the Absolute Beginner: A Clear & Easy Guide to Successful Drawing (Art for the Absolute Beginner). It was a descent book for beginners. Especially the one points, two points perspectives explanation was excellent. However, it was a bit dry and not enough exercises.

My drawings by following the instructions of the book. This was as far as I could go with this book. I switched to another book after that.
