Dick Termes is one of South Dakota’s best known and most unique artists. But instead of painting on a flat canvas, he paints on spheres. His "Termespheres" are complex paintings utilizing six point perspective. They’re usually hung by small chains and rotated by electric motors to reveal a complete world. But the Northern Black Hills artist returns to the basics of drawing in a new instructional DVD called Basic Elements of Drawing. The goal of the DVD is to help anyone learn to draw. Dick Termes joined Dakota Midday and discussed why it's important for people to know how to draw.
