Common reasons most artists struggle with learning how to sketch
Sketching is something that many people would like to do, but are afraid of it. Here are some common myths stopping a lot of artists from pursuing sketching:
#1 “You’re only born with the talent to sketch.”
Sketching is a learned skill just like anything else. In fact, sketching is actually 80% seeing and 20% technique. It’s about unlearning bad habits and learning how to SEE like an artist first. If you can write your name, you can learn how to sketch.
#2 “You have to sketch photo-realistically.”
A lot of artists think sketching is about copying things photo-realistically. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Sketching is about embracing mistakes and your own natural way of making lines, textures, and – most importantly – SEEING. Once you know how to see like an artist – and sketching in your own unique way – your ability to sketch will flourish.
#3 “I don’t have enough time to sketch!”
With just a few minutes a day, you can take big leaps with your sketching. You don’t need to spend 10,000 hours learning how to sketch. When you know how to translate what you see into simple shapes and lines – you’ll start to see an immediate improvement in your sketches.
Start seeing like an artist
Learning how to sketch starts with learning how to SEE.
If you can write your name you can learn to sketch.
Learning how to sketch isn’t about figuring out how to crosshatch or using expensive art supplies, it’s a question of learning to see like an artist.
When you know how to see, you can sketch anything. From people to animals to buildings.
By focusing on the shapes of the objects (and more importantly the shapes between the objects) you will be able to view sketching a subject with a whole new perspective and focus.
