Drawing Supplies

To some people, drawing gives them the feeling of expression. They are able to best convey their emotions. To some, it is a hobby that they can't do without. Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with the talent but still want to learn the craft anyway. But whatever your reason is, it is always best to invest on drawing supplies that will last long and will ultimately bring out the best in your drawings. If you are just starting to appreciate drawing as a hobby or you see drawing as a career in the future well then by all means, the best time to start is now! First, it is ideal that you sketch anything you see around for at least a couple of months before you even attempt drawing. There are a lot of exercises you will find online that are good for beginners to help you jumpstart a hobby or a career. If you plan to draw occasionally as a hobby, I suggest you use drawing pencils which are equipped with erasers. Drawing pencils with erasers allow you to erase mistakes.

Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery: Discover the Secret to Drawing Like a Professional

Being disappointed by a product often happens when many products present false hopes and then do not deliver. Unfortunately, I have had my share of disappointing experiences with several products. I created this review for the Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery in order to save you from going through the same thing.I am nowhere near being a Michelangelo or any other brilliant artist.

I tried to find out whether any product actually existed that could transform a novice into a skilled artist.Christopher Sia was a teacher who has many years of experience teaching art and drawing to hundreds of students. Having failed many drawing tests, Mr. Sia is the first to admit that he is nowh...


Great Tips on Becoming an Accomplished Artist

Many people want to become an artist, yet they feel they were not "born" with the talent to do so. I personally disagree with this belief. To become an accomplished artist is just like anything else in life. It requires the correct mindset and the willingness to succeed. DESIRE - First and foremost, you need to have the desire to learn and grow. Without the desire to learn and grow, your interest will fade over time. You will definitely make mistakes and progress may not happen as quickly as you originally anticipated. If you lack the desire to continue and learn from those mistakes, you will not see much in the way of progress. I can attest to this. When I first began oil painting I recall how terrible my first paintings were. I had no experience mixing or matching colors. I did not understand that mixing colors is a science all in itself. I would either mix too many colors, or mix the wrong colors, and my mixtures came out terrible. I did become quite frustrated, and eventually discouraged, until I finall...
