Drawing and Seeing, Seeing and Drawing
Learning to draw is learning a skill, and, like other skills that require practice, you can do it if you try. Getting past your fears and the thought that "you can't draw" is the first step. It will help to discover the difference between your critical left brain and your creative right brain—and then learn how to banish "Old Lefty" out to left field, where he belongs. He is no help when learning to see and draw, and learning to "just see" will send him packing.
In this section, we provide exercises to help you loosen up and warm up your drawing hand, as well as help you begin to see as an artist does.
