Believe it or not this start drawing art tutorial I produced more than 10 years ago. Bearing in mind it’s age the quality is not great. If you would like to see the updated version of this drawing tutorial check out: Drawing Basics.
In this art tutorial I demonstrate how to start drawing for beginners, using light and shade and tone. I start by using simple shapes drawn with a very light line so mistakes can be easily corrected and follow this up with a bit of shading. These basic techniques are used to show how easy it is to draw a tea cup.
This basic drawing tutorial is aimed at complete beginners, children and anyone who is starting to draw.

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 deflect you from it. 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 and painting 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.
