Drawing represents one of the oldest activities that exist. Since the beginning of humanity, we have always been fascinated with the idea of transmitting messages through images that can last over time.
It doesn't matter if you want to become an artist or just want to start a new hobby, learning how to draw allows you to transform abstract ideas into reality and even release hidden emotions.
This is why we want to give you some basic tips so that you can start drawing like a pro. Let's get started!
It's all about perception!
When you draw, it doesn't matter if you get it right or you get it wrong. Drawing is an activity of perception and understanding of the things that surround you. You, as an artist, show how you perceive the world, so all of your drawings will be unique and original. Don't worry about other people's opinions, just try to have fun and relax while drawing.
Improve your observation skills
In theory, we can all see reality in the same way. However, not all people can capture all the details that the objects around us have.
An interesting exercise to improve your observation skills is to draw your hand. Start by drawing a simple figure and, then try to capture as much detail as you can. With practice, you will be able to apply this technique to all your drawings.
Basic lines and shapes
Every drawing is made up of basic lines and shapes, such as circles, triangles, squares, etc. So, before starting to draw, it is necessary to master the art of lines and geometric figures. Try to draw straight lines without using tools and geometric figures as fast as you can. This exercise will help you to have better control of your hands when drawing.
Imitate other drawings and photographs
To improve your drawing skills, you can start by replicating other images. Look for simple drawings of everyday objects or photographs of landscapes. Over time you will improve your technique and will be able to develop your own style. If you practice 20 or 30 minutes every day, you will see how your skills and concentration will improve quickly.
