Morning everyone, brief intro, artist for about 3years, started with acrylic doing mainly scenery and abstract, picked up watercolour in the past year, so enjoy painting, it's to find the time that is the struggle, the day to day activities and having a full time job(not complaining) sometimes leave very little in a 24 hr period. Hoping to gain other artists insight into their passion and maybe pick up a few tips and friends along the way. Happy Painting! Mike

Studtart9—

You asked for some suggestions how to start learning to draw well—and what art supplies you need.

You are starting in the right place. Learning to draw well is step number one and the way to start is to draw every chance you have. You don't have to be making elaborate finished looking drawings. You should be sketching the things around you.

Drawing is a skill. It is the coordination of your hand, mind and eye that allows you to record images of the things you see. Like any skill it takes practice over a period of time to develop. That is why people say that you learn to draw by drawing. Since this is a basic coordination between your mind and hand, you should be practicing by drawing things around you—things that you see.

There are some basic principles of drawing that will help you, especially as a beginner. That's why a couple of good drawing books will be a great help. Here at Artist Daily there are a number of good books on drawing offered free. Just check the home page on the right side. Any book like this should be used as a work book. There are a lot of artists out there who are self taught.

You asked about materials. Start with the pencils and paper you have around the house. Buy some inexpensive copy paper, nothing fancy. Right now you are just practicing and learning. You are developing skills that you can use and continue to improve for the rest of your life. As you get into this more, visit a local art supply store and buy a kneaded erasure and a tablet of drawing paper.

Nothing can help you more than yourself—you learn to draw by drawing.

Good luck—

Paul
