Beginners: Draw with Lines

Learning to draw with lines is a drawing skill you need to learn. In this art tutorial on How to Draw with Lines for children and beginners using a pencil, I explain how the eye reads lines. Because the eye reads lines, the lines can tell the eye/brain what angle, shape, depth, distance etc is being created by the lines. Although the paper surface is flat the lines can make it appear to be three dimensional, you can create the illusion of space and depth just with line. I show how to make hills look curved, cylinders look rounded, circles look like balls and roads and rivers look flat all with the correct use of line. Make sure that when you draw with lines you think about direction, angle and strength. Your drawing will then be wonderful.

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 drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. You also need the passion and the creativity to experiment and make mistakes.

Only 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, and don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision.
