Drawing tips for beginners

To get started while working from a photo, consider turning the image upside down.  This will help avoid any preconceptions you have about shapes. When you turn it the right way round, you’ll be surprised to see how well you did!

Studying the work of other artists is one of the best ways to explore your own style, discovering what you do and don’t like and what works for you creatively.
