Basic techniques – Draw a Watering Can

Drawing complicated objects is always daunting for beginners to drawing. An artist will tell you to look for the shapes. Draw shapes and not at the object as a whole. But what does this mean? All will be revealed in this simple step by step drawing tutorial. It really is a important you learn to look at objects as shapes, because it is a basic skill of drawing.

This art tutorial takes a simple watering can as the object. The watering can is reduced to a series of simple shapes, because it is easier to start the drawing this way. Don’t be tempted to draw detail first. Drawing the basic shapes of the watering can is easy and once you have drawn the shapes we can move on. The next step is to add detail and finally to draw in tone.

These two art tutorials will extend your knowledge and drawing skills.

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.
