"It is only by drawing often, drawing everything,
drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover,
to your surprise, that you have rendered something
in its true character"
— Camille Pissarro
Drawing skills are an essensial asset to any creative project. The good news is that anyone can learn to draw - it's all about learning how to see. The not so good news is that the learning process takes time, patience and practice - lots of practice!
Here are 5 tips to help improve drawing skills ~
1. Make drawing everyday a priority ~ Always draw first
2. Start looking at everything in terms of simple shapes - squares, circles, rectangles, triangles
3. Don't get bogged down with details
4. Take breaks...
5. Take the time to look at your work (in progress) from different perspectives (in a mirror or upside down)
