Basic Drawing Skills – Outlines and Edges

If you are new to drawing this is the start drawing tutorial for you. This art tutorial starts at the very beginning of drawing and sketching with how to hold a pencil because it’s important. Different effects can be created simply by holding the pencil differently and varying the pressure on the pencil. Using your wrist as a simple compass is explained and demonstrated as you would expect.

Once these basic drawing skills have been demonstrated the art tutorial moves on to drawing a simple can. If you want to start drawing this is the place to start. Once you have mastered drawing the can in outline and getting basic shapes correct you can move on. The second part of the video shows the difference between the use of edges and outlines. Edges are more effective at creating 3D drawings and it is simple to do.

Are you an Artist?

At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of sketching, drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far.

Remember obtaining the best materials you can afford will not make you a better artist. What you do with the materials is the important issue. Paul Gauguin painted on sacking, not premium canvas. Passion, the creativity to experiment and make mistakes is far more important.

You will become an artist if …

You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Or tell you that your art work is not relevant or good enough – what do they know!

Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to drawing that will inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision and hopefully, will help you become the artist you have always wanted to be. I sincerely hope so.
