Drawing What you See

Today let's talk about drawing what you see.  When you don't have an idea, just look around and draw what is in the room.  Drawing everday items, like a...shoe, is not only fun, but easy, too. Start by drawing just the shapes and forms.  Next add in the details.  Last, but not least, shade your drawing.  Sometimes I really can't capture what I am trying to draw, but at least I try.  Trying is an important tool in art. Remember, "practice makes perfect!"

Below are my attempts to draw a shoe, blow dryer, cold sore medication, and a hole puncher.

I love how you admit you don't always get it quite right. The hole puncher looks like an evil mouse.
