How to Paint Or Draw For Beginners

For beginners, learn to paint or draw by starting with simple shapes. This will help you refine your motor skills while improving hand-eye coordination.

To draw, you must first understand perspective and proportions. Your brain is wired to recognize lines, so it’s important to teach yourself to think in terms of planes instead.

Landscapes

The easiest way to begin a landscape painting is with a pencil drawing. This is where you begin with a simple grid that identifies the major areas of your picture, then start outlining them with very basic lines. One of the biggest challenges for beginners is not letting any one area of their drawing dominate. It is important to show restraint so you can continue building the drawing as a whole and avoid losing track of how the parts fit together.

Once you have a strong base in your pencil drawing, you can move on to using other materials such as watercolor, oil paint, or even ink wash. These landscape tutorials will help you learn how to create beautiful scenes of mountains, lakes, rivers, and grassy fields. They will also teach you how to add depth to your landscapes through subtle variances in tones. Claude Monet is a master at this and his paintings look very realistic.

Night Sky

In this video, you’ll learn how to paint a mesmerizing night sky that will impress your friends. No previous painting experience is required! This step-by-step tutorial will walk you through the steps.

Start with the background by blending together prussian blue, lilac, and shell pink in your palette. Then, using a small brush, begin to paint the top quarter of your canvas. Once dry, add more purple paint to fill the next quarter. Continue to add more and more until you are happy with the colors and proportions.

Now it’s time to add the stars! Use a toothbrush and white paint. This can be done in a variety of ways: you can splatter them (like in this tutorial), flick them with your finger, or if you want more control over where the stars go, you can hand paint each one. Then let it dry and enjoy! You’ve created a beautiful night sky painting. You can even frame it and hang it up.

Pop Art

The pop art style is a fun one to try, with lots of patterns and bold colors. It is often inspired by products or celebrities from popular culture and uses themes of irony and satire.

Start with a simple line drawing and fill in the pattern areas with different colours. Be careful to use similar (analogous) colors or they will visually camouflage the image and lose impact.

Add some more recognizable elements of the style, like blocks of color in simplified shapes and black outlines. Text is also a feature of pop art and can be written in block letters or in a speech bubble shape.

A classic example of pop art is Andy Warhol’s soup or Roy Lichtenstein’sscenarios’. This drawing of a lipstick is also a great example. To personalize this picture, you could add your own words, such as bang, pow or any other word that suggests a loud noise. This makes a lovely gift for a friend or family member.

Ink

While painting and drawing are different mediums, the concepts learned in one can be applied to the other. A common misconception is that you need to master drawing before you can learn to paint, but this isn’t true.

When you are ready to try ink, consider using a dip pen and watercolours rather than a brush or oil paints. The softer line work is easier to control. It’s also a great way to practice different line weights and techniques like shadow and texture.

Keep in mind that you won’t be able to produce a masterpiece every time, especially as a beginner. Stick with simple motifs that are easy to draw and don’t be too hard on yourself. Even a painting that fails to turn out well can be a valuable learning experience for the next one. Use light pressure on your pencil when sketching; this will make delicate lines easier to erase and correct. Also, avoid purchasing a lot of expensive supplies until you know you’re committed to the hobby.
