When somebody says they can't draw... Is it true?
The fact is that people draw every day... they just don't know they are drawing.
The function of drawing is to make marks onto paper or another surface. These marks will show ideas and information. Communication with these marks is usually done with writing or pictures.
"You can draw if you can write"
Writing a message uses the same skills as drawing.
When you are writing you don't have to think about what you are doing...
* You are forming lines
* You are drawing circles
* You are creating curves
It is easy for you to write. Writing comes naturally to you. You were taught to write from an early age. The skills come easily to you.
The same skills are used for drawing that you use when you write...
* You can use a series of lines to draw a house
* You use a combination of curves to draw a face
This means that you can learn to draw. The only thing stopping you is that it will take your time and effort to develop your drawing skills.
Take a challenge... Pick up a pen or pencil and draw a cat or a dog. Don't worry if the result is disappointing. The resulting drawing could look like quite different from a cat or dog.
This is no great surprise to you. You already know that you can't draw.
However, it could surprise you to learn that many artists would struggle to get an exact likeness.
When you learn to draw, the real challenge is to improve your observation skills.
Take a closer look at a cat and dog. Look at the head...
* See the shape of the head
* See how the ears are placed on top
* See the eyes
* Look at the nose
In seconds you discover a better understanding. The picture in your mind will be strong and crystal clear...
"Now, you will see a sudden improvement when you draw the next dog or cat picture"
