Drawing is one of the ways of expressing oneself creatively using paper and pen. Drawing treats many psychological problems that a person goes through, such as: stress, depression, anxiety and others, in addition to helping to relax and increase creativity.
Some people have an innate skill in drawing, this type of people only needs to develop this skill, while the other type needs to learn drawing from the ground up, and this type requires more patience and perseverance and not give up until he learns to draw well until he masters it.
Drawing tools :-
3- The brush
To teach drawing :-
1 – Hold your pens the right way
2- Move the hand from the wrist
3 – Don’t apply too much pressure
The intended pressure here is the pressure of the fingers on the pen and the pressure of the wrist downward to fix the hand on the table. If you do one or two things together, it will be difficult for you to move the pen and draw smoothly, and most importantly, you will suffer from pain in the hand, especially if this is the first time you undergo Where to teach drawing
4 – Control going and back
To do this as you are used to, that is, you have to hold a pen and paper and work on coloring a spot in the way the pen goes and lowers it onto the paper, and then another spot by moving the pen in one direction. Of course, I noticed the difference between the first and second method in terms of color intensity and line thickness. Both are used, but one of them may be something you do on a regular basis.
5 – Give your hand some practice
You can practice about 15-30 minutes a day on these things continuously or divide these minutes with breaks between them, and during these minutes you draw anything or write or color and the important thing is to follow the right way.
Basic drawing skills :-
In order for the painter to begin drawing, he must understand and perceive the shape or environment to be drawn.
-Perception of the edges: It is the outer frame that defines the shapes, and it may be two-dimensional or three-dimensional depending on the shape that the painter looks at. He starts drawing the edges from any point, and this is the first step that enables him to determine the general shape of the painting. And the painter must draw the edges while looking at the figure, not the drawing paper.
–Perception of volumes: it is the discernment of the space occupied by a body in space, and to draw it, the painter begins with the axis that is located in the middle of the bodies, and then draws the parts surrounding it.
-Understanding relationships: it is drawing several shapes next to each other, and seeing them as one unit, and as one group interacting with each other, and uniting them as one surrounding.
-Distinguishing light and shadows: Shadow and light help a greater understanding of the shape of objects or shapes. The lighting and shadows are usually gradual, as the light falling on the body gradually recedes towards the areas that the light does not reach, so the painter must draw the shadows in different degrees, and not move from light to dark directly.
Start with the basics for beginners :
Learning new drawing skills requires time, drawing supplies and tools, in order to develop the concept of line, shape and depth. There are a set of exercises for beginners to learn drawing, including the following:
-Drawing detailed diagrams: where it is possible to choose a basic topic, such as choosing a piece or part of the fruit, and drawing broad lines more than once, and you should not feel nervous if the drawings do not match reality, because the goal is to get relief from seeing the drawings, and preparing copies of models.
-Shading: You can choose a group of drawings and add shading to show the depth. You must also take into account the presence of light and shadows in the drawing, and use the pen and eraser to repeat the shading process.
Note: It is not recommended to do all of these exercises at the same time, but each exercise must be applied alone to master it, without fear of repetition.
