“Anyone can learn to draw.”
Which of these statements is true? A year ago, I would’ve said the first statement applied to me, but I decided to scour the internet for some drawing tutorials, just to see if I could learn to draw anyway. Turns out, I could, but I stick by my belief that I wasn’t “born” with the talent.
The following made all the difference:
- A good instructor/tutorial
- The right materials
- The ability to listen, observe, then implement
The above is my very first charcoal drawing. I was surprised it turned out, but I love it.
After I finished the original, I preserved it with a fixative spray. Next, I photographed it, then applied a bit of digital wizardry for some variety. I used apps like PhotoLab Pro and Snapseed.
Think you can’t draw?
