Hey guys !
Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
Today, I would like to share some basics of drawing. If you know me before or following me on Instagram / Pinterest, then you might have already seen my drawings. It is one of my favorite hobbies to do. When I was in school I used to draw and craft a lot more than now.
Yes! Drawing is simple. I draw by using just a couple of HB pencils. By using a simple HB pencil you can create wonderful art. But… You need to know some tricks to use these pencils, that is…
Here ‘H’ stands for “Hard” and ‘B’ stands for “Bold” and ‘F’ is hanging out between H and HB.
B – used for bolder, darker lines, and smudgy than a light pencil.
H – used for lighter, finer and less smudgy than a dark pencil.
For everyday purposes, such as writing and simple sketching, we use 2H to 2B. Harder pencils, such as H – grade pencils are great for light sketching, like drafting an outline of something before you go over it or before you paint over it. Bolder pencils, such as B – grade pencils are great for expressive sketching or shading.
By using this simple technique you can draw beautiful pictures. Some of my drawings are shown below…
If you want to really hurt you parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
