We learn to draw simply by continuing to draw … and by believing that we can do it. Drawing is the most natural form of expression and yet it makes us so fearful. We fear what people will think of our work or whether what we are doing is good or bad; we fear that we are not making progress or that we are wasting our time or money. These fears can overwhelm our desire to learn to draw and deny us a great pleasure. In learning simple drawing techniques we develop the confidence to continue to draw, to be proud to show others what we draw, to see our artistic progress and to know that we are making a priceless investment of our time and money.
