Pencil Drawing Ideas

How to Generate Creative Ideas!

Pencil drawing is a wonderful medium to work in and it is ideal for not only quick sketches as a preliminary to completing the picture in paint form, but as a quantifiable picture in it?s own right. Pencil drawing can produce exquisite pictures once the relevant technique has been acquired and all artists simply need to practice as regularly as possible so as to achieve a good standard. Pencil drawing offers a variety of techniques and a vast number of topics to draw, and the ideas once the mind has been tuned in to all of the possibilities, are endless.

Drawing subjects are literally all around us, so there is never any reason for the artist to feel that they do not know what to draw. Of course, there are those artists who have specialist subjects and sometimes this can make it a little more difficult to find the subject that inspires them and this could be because of lack of opportunity or availability. Because pencil drawing is such a versatile medium, it is easy for the artist to have a wander outside their studios and be motivated by the images and scenes around.

To generate ideas, take your sketch pad and pencils and a camera and go for a walk:

- If you have a wander round a traditional park, notice the trees, the leaves, the multi coloured hues all around. Try to feel a part of the scene and feel a sense of belonging. To truly be able to capture the sheer beauty of the natural environment, the artist needs to be able to form an immense appreciation for their surroundings.

- Even if you are wandering around your town centre, there are still some fascinating scenes to be captured for your pencil drawing.? People alone make for an interesting pencil drawing and you can very quickly capture the essence of their persona by looking at their most significant qualities. Buildings too are wonderful to draw and you may be surprised at just how many different architectural type buildings there are around you.

As an artist, you constantly need to be able to capture key elements of the environment around you and always consider the composition of your pencil drawing before you start.
