Want to be an Artist? You need to know this.. PART 1

If you want to be an artist, the key is learning to draw. In this art tutorial aimed at beginners and students of art, I explain what drawing is.
Drawing is a language, like any other language because it is another means of communication. Drawing has an ‘alphabet’ of marks , textures, tones, shapes etc, that give an image its meaning and therefore its means to communicate.

Learning to draw means learning to see with a critical eye. Drawing is not about what you think you see, or what some one else tells you to see. It is about your vision, your ideas. Drawing is about observation it trains your eyes to see, to compare and contrast what is in front of you.

Being good at drawing is not about the ability to copy someone else’s work. Being an artist is all about your vision, because that is unique. Uniqueness is one of the qualities if you are going to step towards becoming an artist.

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.
