How to draw what you see and feel!
Drawing tips will be received in abundance if you are receiving expert tuition either through college or by personal tuition from a qualified artist. If you are just starting out on your creative pathway, then you can always try reading drawing tips from any one of the many good drawing books which are available through books shops or through websites specialising in artist materials. DVD?S also offer a variety of drawing tips which gives you a good starting point for your own personal development.
There are also many good art magazines available and these can be obtained through subscription or local newsagents. A qualified artist or art teacher can supply many drawing tips which can help you in the early stages and these drawing tips might include the following:
- Learn to draw what you see around you and that means learning to view life from an artist?s perception. Learn to look at shades, colours and shapes.
- Understand just what makes a landscape special. Is it the layout of the landscape? The colouring? Is it the sunlight glinting through dappled greenery? Is it the gentle blue of the river meandering through curved meadows?
- Think about perspective. Where is your best view? Draw from this angle so that anyone who looks at your drawing will feel like they are seeing the landscape through your eyes.
- Get out into the countryside as much as possible and get used to drawing from real life. Relying on photos will not offer you as much visual information and certainly will give you less sensory perception.
- Always ensure you have paper and sharpened pencils available and try to draw something each and every day. Don?t just copy form but employ all your senses to capture an evocative scene.
Practice your drawing technique as often as you can and although there is always much to learn, the best drawing tips are those which says practice makes perfect.
