How to draw exactly what I see?

How to draw exactly what I see?

Questions from Łukasz

– How to reduce time of drawing? I think my pictures are never finished.
– How to learn to use right pencils in right way?
– I tend to press too much while I’m drawing and end up with pictures that don’t look natural.
– And the most important question is, how to train my eye to draw exactly what I see?

Feedback from Vladimir London, Drawing Academy Tutor

Hi Łukasz,

If you want to become a better artist, you need to stop worrying on how long it takes to make a drawing and focus on how well and correctly you want to do it. Speed will come with practice.

Do not push your drawing to be completely finished. Sometimes it is better to stop working on an artwork just before you think it is done. Less is more. Slightly unfinished drawings give room to imagination and look better than overworked ones.

When it comes to choosing a pencil grade, a good artwork depends more on your drawing skills than on your drawing tools. A great master will be able to create a masterpiece with just one pencil in hand; while the full range of art materials would not make an artwork of a mediocre artist any better. Strive for skills, not for collection of drawing materials. In the Drawing Academy video lessons you will find necessary information on various materials and the right way to use them.

Using too much pressure on a pencil is a common mistake. There are certain exercises you can do to get a better feel of a drawing tool. Such exercises are fully described in the Drawing Academy course.

It is an erroneous approach to draw exactly what you see. The right way is to draw what you know about the object you see. This is the fundamental difference between a professional and amateur artist. No matter how well your eyes are trained to see what you draw, mistakes in the drawing will be inevitable. For example, it is simply impossible to draw a three-dimensional world on a flat surface without distortions. Drawing what you see will make you a “copying machine”. However, drawing with the full knowledge of perspective, proportions, constructive drawing rules, and so on, will minimize mistakes and make your artwork more believable.

In the Drawing Academy video lessons we give in-depth information and show step-by-step traditional drawing techniques that you will find particularly helpful in improving your drawing skills.

In addition, as a Drawing Academy student, you will also benefit from unlimited personal support by academy tutors. You will also have a lifetime access to all video lessons and bonuses.

Just think of any other educational institution that gives unlimited support and tutoring for a one time fee. I think you will agree that Drawing Academy is special.

Kind regards,

Vladimir London
