In recent parts you learned how to understand your subjects better, to overcome your fear of failure and how to practice your drawing skills determinedly.

This time I'll give you seven important tips that will help you to learn to draw fast:

 

Image 1.    Get a sketchbook. It cannot be emphasized enough. Get one of those nice sketchbooks and take it with you everywhere you go! It allows you to use every free minute for practicing your drawing skills and depict interesting scenes you encounter

Image 2.    Keep your drawings safe. As important as having a sketchbook (and keeping them after you have filled them) is to keep everything you draw. Get a folder to store them safe and protected from damage. Never ever throw away any of your drawings. This way you will collect a nice portfolio and can reference your recent works for inspiration and to keep track of your progress.

Image 3.    Criticize your drawings later. As we discussed in the part about fighting your fear of failure  - don't be overly judgmental about your drawings. Whenever the little critic in you wants to spring into action, outsmart him. Store your drawing away (in your folder) and tell him "later". In a few weeks or months you will see your drawing in a much more friendly light than today.

4.    Drawing from life is superior. You'll see: depicting real-life subjects seems to be more difficult than merely copying photos or other drawings. But it is much more rewarding and your drawings look much more lively and realistic. How it works? I don't know for sure, but I'd guess your mind somehow absorbs the scenery with all senses giving you more inspiration to put on the paper.

Image 5.    Don't draw complicated subjects. Stay away from subjects that are too complicated. Instead start with simple subjects that you can understand and depict as good as you want it to be. Then increase the difficulty in little steps so your drawing skills can grow with the small challenges you are facing.

6.    Don't go into Detail too much. When drawing, less is more. Most of us tend to add too many details, too many small lines, too many unimportant objects. Don't try to draw all the details you see. Instead try to capture the scene as a whole, absorb how it feels and try to put this to paper using only few lines.

7.    Practice, practice, practice. Oh and did I mention it? Practice! You cannot draw to often. And yes: you will learn to draw much faster. Always keep in mind: every line you draw, every drawing or sketching you finish improves your drawing skills and brings you one step forward. Practice by drawing scenes you encounter in everydays life into your sketchbook. Practice by doing the exercises I've shown you. Just practice.

Mimi  - Draw landscape faster   |:
I've often been on the car passanger's seat lately and saw potential subjects
for a landscape drawing. But since a car move fast I can't exactly depict much
from any of them. Besides I couldn't ask the driver to stop at every minute just
to draw a scene. So I thought this question might be sth new. How can I draw
scenery faster?
