If you can hold a pen in your hand, you can learn to draw well
Even if you can
t draw two simple lines you
ll be able to improve by using these exercises.I have taken people
of all ages
from preschoolers to people in their 70s
and in 20 minutes or less
I wouldsee the light come on in their eyes when they suddenly realise
that this process works
works for them
and that they can, despite all previous experiences to the contrary,
draw in ways that are pleasing to them.
s a simple case study in picture format.
Pandanus Palms are palms with leaves that cluster at the top of the branches and can be complex to decipher
in relation to perspective and proportion as the pictures above show.Confidence with line placement dramatically improves the look of any drawing.
So just how do you develop this all important confidence?
One of the first secrets is
learning how to work without an eraser
Knowing where to place the pen inthe first place is one of the secrets to being able to draw
Confidence allows you to draw with flourish andthat sense of unleashing your creative flow.It was evident that so many
people did not have the opportunity to take time out and seek a greatteacher to impart enough knowledge to get started
There are great art classes you can attend but many people are too embarrassed by their level of skills to front
up to an art class.
There are great art books you can buy but they usually begin at a level which is already beyond the reach of
many developing artists. In frustration you may just stay where you are with limited or negligible skill and decide
that anything more is just beyond you.
The foundation of knowing how to draw with confidence is of immense value
to graphic designers,web developers, school teachers, painters, business people, hobbyists, interior designers, creativeprofessionals, parents, students, teacher aides and school librarians in fact anyone who want to draw.
Why did I write these books in the first place?
I was illustrating a set of books for a publisher who asked me how I got so good at drawing. I told him.
Would you like to write a series of books for us?
I wrote the series.
I hold the electronic rights. I now make this series available to you at a fraction of
the cost of the printed books and I
ve added some other goodies to go with.
In response to a request from a publisher for whom I was illustrating a series of books, I decided to create myown drawing exercises based on a workshop approach, except you can follow these successfully without aninstructor.
The concept is to allow you, the student, to draw what you see orwhat your
s eye sees
I spent over two years documenting the methods that I teach
and how to best get the fundaments across
to students without needing me to be present in person.
This allows for everybody to have the samebeneficial instruction no matter where you are.
Using these exercises at workshops
I was able to determine that 100% of the people
working with theseparticular exercises
were able to draw past their initial expectations.
