Drawing bottles can be boring but not if your pencil is attached to a three foot cane. Creativity has never been so exciting. This is the second art tutorial in my series on Creative Drawing. In this drawing tutorial I am using bottles as the theme as they are often used as starting points in GCSE art projects. I draw the bottles with a piece of graphite attached to a long stick to create a more interesting line.
Drawing the bottles on top of each other before looking to add more line is important. With the pencil you can then emphasize the verticality of the drawing. I explain how by varying the line and the tone added to the drawing, the drawing can be come more creative and imaginative. You’ll notice how you can get the eye to focus on elements of the drawing by strengthening the tone.
Imagine drawing bananas can be creative too, if you use two pencils at the same time. Check out my tutorial; Creative Drawing – Bananas
This video is aimed at teenagers studying art and GCSE art, and those wishing to add a little more imagination to their drawings.

Want to be 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.
Fussing about whether or not you have the best pencils or paint brushes will not make you an artist. Being passionate about your art, having 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.
