A good pencil drawing can be easily achieved if the artist is willing to invest a lot of time and effort into acquiring the relevant techniques. Even those who feel that they have little or no drawing talents at all can very quickly ascertain how to produce a fine pencil drawing.
There are many good ways of learning these techniques such as attending an art class, joining an online art course and of course, reading or watching books and cd. Alternatively, trial and error with some quick and easy drawing exercises can help to kick - start the learning process.
Try these drawing exercises:
1. Have a look around your house and see if there are any items which you would like to draw. It should be something that you are visually attracted to, a flower for example, a ring, or picture frame? Make your choice and then allow yourself ten minutes to be able to draw it. Once you have attempted your pencil drawing, evaluate your work and be honest but fair about the result.
2. Now find a photo in a magazine that you are drawn to. This could be an image of a person, a place or an object. As you flick through the pages, think about how you would try to draw the images on the pages in front of you. Once you have made your choice, try to connect with the picture and then commence your drawing. You have ten minutes to complete the project, and after you have finished, conclude by evaluating how you did.
3. If you have any animals then your next exercise is to draw the family pet. Once again, allow yourself ten minutes to quickly see if you can capture the likeness whilst drawing quickly. Focus on your pencil drawing and pay special attention to the fur or feathers for example. There is no need to draw everything painstakingly, simply draw what you need to be able to capture the likeness.
4. Now find something else in your surroundings and this time, allow yourself half an hour to focus not only on the drawing but to work on light and shade. By allowing yourself a little extra time, you will be able to work on the pencil drawing and watch it develop. The previous exercises will allow you to feel relaxed and be in touch with your drawing technique and this will ensure that you can then produce your best work.
